I think you meant 78%, assuming you were looking at the latest User Survey
results [1], page 55. Still a hefty number.

It is important to note that the User Survey lumps all versions of a given
OS together, whereas the TC reference [2] only considers the latest
LTS/stable version. If the User Survey split out latests LTS/stable
versions vs. others (e.g. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS), I expect we'd see Ubuntu 18.04
LTS + Centos 7 adding up to much less than 78%.
