I searched on Google, found few things, aren't there many of them?

You can "cheat" and use the fact WMS is web-based to find them yourselves with some cunning searches. A search for the following should yield WMS servers:

"request=getcapabilities" "SERVICE=WMS" filetype:xml

Unfortunately many modern search engines (including Google) assume you mean something else despite the quotes, so not all results are what they should be.

Change the WMS to WFS or whichever service you want as appropriate. The "filetype:XML" isn't strictly necessary.

Excellent idea. Just a slight revision, to search xml files in google the "fileype" switch is used instead of "format". google.com/… –  Brent Edwards May 14 '12 at 15:36
    
Ooops, that's the one I was going for. Corrected. Thanks. :-) –  GIS-Jonathan May 14 '12 at 15:39

If you search for claudius.ptolomaeus@gmail.com you'll find lots of WMS (and WFS, WCS etc) that he is the default GeoServer administrator for.

I once found this on the internet: http://www.skylab-mobilesystems.com/en/wms_serverlist.html

Hope this is useful.
