As well as Linux, lots and lots of Windows users download (maybe not use so much

When Gimp was hosted on sourceforge, you could get statistics.
In case that link scrambles the sourceforge traffic for Gimp
I would assume that the level that dropped off when Gimp dropped sourceforge
continued at gimp.org.
