Well absolute numbers are not
very useful, especially when counted
worldwide. You get a better sense of a distribution if you know what
people think. We have also thoought about those problems at GNOME
marketing list http://live.gnome.org/CountingUsers
The problems is the
quality of the data. I think it would make much more sense if this would
be a combined effort that would be led by freedesktop.org
anyway we need measures that mist distributions or desktops accept. If
all do it differently you wil not have any relations you can count on.
So I would rather recommend to discuss such things on freedesktop-promo
