I really think we can only have rough estimates about that kind of information.  Even the 
Debian project cannot count the number of installed distros:
   1 iso download=1, 10, ..., N installations?
   1 aptitude update/upgrade = 1, 10, ..., N upgrades (via apt-cacher)?

In fact this is a really difficult question to ask.  Of course, with better tracking 
tools, the estimations will become more precise or cover particular topics, but still...

Tools such as "The Linux Counter" ( also exist but require at least 
a manual intervention (then a script can be used).  Debian also have a package popularity 
contest (, etc. and all of these things are really fun indeed!

Go on Trinity, tell us how much you're popular!
