Hmm, hard to say on my end. I'll break it down to rough percentage:

30% Incandescent
 9% Fluorescent (compact, linear, induction)
11% Light Emitting Diode
47% High Intensity Discharge
 3% Specialty

We are starting a database that will have all of the lamps on it, but it's going to take time to enter them all...  @-@ :poof: :o

I started collecting lamps 5 years ago.
I am not sure as my collection is too big to count, In total I think I have around 800-1000.
Around 600-700 of them are CFL  :cfl1: :stickcfl: :cfl3: :cflstickhd: :a_sl: :cflhd:
Around 200 of them are Incandescent  :inc:
Around 50 of them are all other Fluorescent types  :lfl: :circ: :a_fluor: :a_fluor-blb: :a_pl: :a_2d:
Around 30 are CCFLs /
Around 20 are Halogen  :hd_hal: :hal:
Around 30 are Neon glow  :ne2:  :ff: :neonflkflamehd:
2 Xenon arctubes from flash  :fls:
2 Krypton flashlight bulbs :no smiley for it exists:
2 HPS  :son-t:, 2 LPS  :sox18: :sox35:, 2 Mercury Vapor  :a_mv: and 3 Metal Halides  :tumh:
1 Mixed lighting (Self ballasted Mercury Vapor)  :sbmvhd:
That's all I think  ;D

I'm not a big fan of led bulbs since they're the cause of other COOLER technology types being phased out....
