December 5th, 2006, 11:17 AM

I am interested in finding out how many distros have been shipped and downloaded for an assignment I am writing. I would like to include Kubuntu, Edubuntu and Xubuntu, any idea where I can get this info?

Hi, Roy,

I'm not sure. I haven't seen any data on this. What I'll do to try to help you find out is move your post and create a new thread in the cafe. Maybe someone who has an idea will post a followup or perhaps some good questions to help you refine your search.

Have a route around distrowatch (http://distrowatch.com/)

I'm sure you'll be able to find out some of the info your looking for over there

Estimates of Ubuntu installs (in general including all variants) can range from 4-8 Million machines depending on who you ask.

Actual downloaded/shipped cds could break the top end of this estimate.
