I agree. It can be used as a lower bound, thought. It is unlikely
that there are fewer Debian systems than those reporting to
popcon.debian.org. And tomorrow, I expect that number to pass 40 000. :)
Anyway, popularity-contest give us feedback on the package usage, and
even if the number of contributors do not match the number of
installed systems, it still give us valuable feedback on the relative
package usage. :)
