Hi all,

First, let me say thank you to everyone on the Lubuntu team.  I have
been using Lubuntu for over a year now, and it is quite possibly the
fastest, most efficient operating system I have ever used (and I have
used many).  Keep up the extraordinary work.

A few weeks ago on this list, a question was raised about the current
number of Lubuntu users.  I was a little surprised that no one had a
clear idea, and that estimates varied widely.  It seems a little
dangerous from a development standpoint to have so little information
about your userbase, doesn't it?  Wouldn't it be valuable to determine
a way of gathering data about how many people use Lubuntu, and how
they use it?

I don't ask this because I want to burden you with another task.  I
may be able to offer some help myself.  I like Lubuntu, and intend to
use it well into the future.  But operating systems have demonstrated
a clear tendency to eventually lose touch with and alienate their
userbase.  I think Lubuntu developers, being better than average,
might recognize this common problem, and take steps to safeguard
against it.  One safeguard might be the collection of this data.

What do you think?
