We do have something like this:
http://en.opensuse.org/Statistics

It doesn't report anything on the "which desktop is more popular?"
topic, though.

Do we want that? If we agree it's important I'm sure we can put
desktop specific updates online for the sake of counting :)

Greetings, Stephan

Frankly, even that would be misleading.  I use GNOME but as a matter of
practice, I install both KDE and GNOME when I set up my machines.  While
I don't use KDE, I do still get and download KDE updates whenever
available.  And don't get me started on whether unique IPs is an
accurate count either, although it's probably the best metric we can
come up with.

Only trust the statistics you make up yourself. ;-)

Yes, it'd be misleading, but it'd be closer to reality than not, and
more data than we have currently. I'd be in favor of that +
implementing the Popcon feature + being a little more emphatic about
collecting Smolt data.

The more information we have about installed packages, etc., the
better to make decisions.

I think it would be more interesting to know how many have just one DE
versus multiple DE's.

Count me in there. I install multiple DE's on most machines as a
matter of course. This machine has KDE 4.3 and GNOME and Xfce. My
laptop for travel has KDE & GNOME. My netbook has (right now) Moblin.

Best,

Zonker
