Debian architecture usage

FTP download numbers from mirror logs:

These numbers are unrepresentative in several ways. Use with caution. For example:

  • Lots of people have private mirrors
  • Web caches distort download statistics effectively
  • Architecture popularity varies between countries
  • There is no statistics for CD distribution
  • It's unlikely that people do network installs of s390
  • It's possible that one downloads once, then install multiple times
  • Most embedded people are likely to have local mirrors
