I work at a hardware company writing drivers for Linux. There seems to be a lot of difficulty estimating the size of the Linux install base, and as a result resources are directed to non-windows platforms, which are easier to quantify with sales numbers.
It occurred to me that most people installing Linux have at least one question about the platform. In my experience, everyone gets a few answers from askubuntu.com over time. The unique visitors to this site seem like a decent proxy to the size of the Linux install base.
Can anyone provide google analytics numbers for askubuntu.com that I could use to support my team?
