Where the facts came from

I don't know exactly where Michael got his facts from but there are several well-known comparisons on the net that support what he wrote:

http://www.google.com/trends?q=fedora%2C+ubuntu%2C+mac+os%2C+suse&ctab=0&geo=all&date=all

http://distrowatch.com/ (page down and look for "Page Hit Ranking" in the right-hand column).

Like any sources of internet statistics, these can be quibbled with for different reasons, but there are more (go and look) and as far as I can tell they all tell more or less the same story.
