I was interested in this question since I was considering buying an ADS-B receiver like Airnav's radarbox so as to know what the flyovers were. I subscribe to the planeplotter network and see about 5 - 15% of the overflights as having ADS-B. I decided against purchasing it for now. I believe in a few years most commercial aircraft will participate and will re-visit the notion of purchasing a radarbox type receiver at that time.
An interesting selection effect is that since foreign carriers are more likely to use ADS-B, they tend to disproportionately show up in detections! Also, such flights are more likely to be detected near major destinations and along routes linking them such as NY - LAX .

Quoting FLY2HMO (Reply 1): I don't know of any airlines (in the US at least) that are so equipped
Actually ADS is what is being invested in right now. All the 747 and 777 aircraft at United are full up CNS/ATM (FANS) equipped. So right there is about 80+ that have ADS, along with everything else that comes standard in the FANS Pegasus FMC/MCDU. Its actually filled as equipped in ICAO flight plans as well. I.E.
