I don't think you can correlate the number of downloads to the number of users, because it assumes that one download = one user, which isn't necessarily the case. Using myself as an example, I've downloaded at least 5 different distros from LQ ISO, but four of them ended up being not to my liking, and pretty much were one time experiments. As titanium_geek mentioned, there are a lot of people who may check out other distros from time to time, looking to see if the new distro is better than the one they're running now, but each download isn't necessarily a new user. As a result, a 1M user count would be the theoretical maximum, not the minimum. In any event, regardless of the actual number of users, we can all be sure that the higher the number of downloads, the more Linux users there are -- J.W.
