The other thing from a development point-of-view is that there is 
probably a need/value of some of us who may have one of these massive 
hard drives on a computer to have more than one linux partition so we 
can side-by-side see where there are issues with one distro or another.

I would add that this doesn't have to be devs doing this, but really 
anyone who wants to help the project.

The only other thing to add is that maybe we can avoid arguing about how 
popular or how many computers run this or that distro. I think what 
Craig was referring to is the long-standing and really unsolvable issue 
of knowing how much Linux is out there and what kind it is. This serves 
proprietary OS companies, but is for the rest of us rather uninformative.
