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.
We now have a ubuntu user counter @ http://ubuntucounter.geekosophical.net/
The more Microsoft products you buy,the higher your bill gets
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.
