Ubuntu is very much behind other Linux distributions on Linux Counter (http://counter.li.org/reports/machines.php)
Here is the current statistics:

I suggest people should register on Linux Counter (http://counter.li.org/).
In addition to personal registration you need to enter your machine on which you are using Ubuntu so that the Ubuntu users number goes up.

Well, Linux Counter is a hanging around for a while now, and lot's of its information is not updated (since it is user dependent).
For instance, I have 2 computers now. I had 2 before, but one got dead and I set another one this year. In Linux Counter I'm registered as having 2 systems (which include my dead system), both of which are running Mandrake 9.0 and Mandrake 9.2. That's not true anymore.
ps: I have updated my info, but probably many users don't.

This should be automated. On install, the user could be asked wether he/she wants to register in Linux Counter. Something like the popularity-contest package.

there is also popularity contest (that also keeps stats on what packages you have installed).
just install the popcon package, then check http://popcon.ubuntu.com/
