Mark Shuttleworth lately said that the goal of Ubuntu is 200 million in 4 years. How can they determine that? Which method will they use? IPs, Downloads? Updates? Which all seems to be inaccurate.
How can I tell Canonical I'm an Ubuntu user? can't they make a survey during the install process saying, if you are an Ubuntu user tick this option once? Or to make an update to all supported versions, with a pop up saying click ok if you are an Ubuntu user. And if you have more than one machine running Ubuntu please click ok just on one machine?
