Open source in China

This place: says that 80% of Chinese use Open Source software.

Yet this impromptu Google survey says that only 8% of people around Times Square know what a browser is:

Doesn't compute, does it? People who don't know what a browser is would know about Open Source and be able to distinguish it from other forms of software licenses?

I think I know what's going on here: 80% of Chinese users think that Windows and Office are open source products because they got pirated copies of them for free :-)!
