Office Suites:  Market Share, who is using what ?

FirstDownMage used Ask the Experts™
I am going to be posting three questions in regards to, People are using what Office Suites.  I have been asking to gather up information that would support using MS Office 2003.  So any legit information that is biased towards that goal, is fine with me.

This first question is this:

Does any one know of any websites that have information regarding the Market Share of each Office Suite.  MS Office 2007, 2003,  Corel Office Suite, OpenOffice by Sun.  I'm sure there are others out there.  Last I checked (which was a little while ago), Office 07, had only a 7% market share.  But that number was never substantiated.  I need some kind of info on the net that would show what percentage of people are using which Office Suites.  IF the info was further broken down to show by schools, colleges, homes, business, would be fantastic.
