odd comment on a /. post
April 8, 2010
I normally don’t read slashdot. Mmcgrath pointed me to this from the article:
‘We have no phone home or registration process, so it’s always a guesstimate. But based on the same methodology that we came up with for the 2008 number, our present belief is that it’s somewhere north of 12 million users at the moment,” Chris Kenyon, vice president for OEM at Canonical, told InternetNews.com.’ Just in case you were wondering, Fedora still claims more — actually almost double, at 24 million.”
I was confused by this – since fedora has our numbers posted. So, when I read them it looks like in a 20-week sample period we found a total of 2million unique ips.
And that over the lifetimes of f7,f8,f9,f10,f11 and f12 we’ve tracked 24 million connections from 20 million unique ips.
We never claimed 24 million users – just 24 million connections from 20 million unique ips.
In the last 20 weeks we claimed 2 million unique ips
At most we might claim 2 million user connections in the last 20 weeks, but apparently the /. “editors” cannot read the tables.
