A while back, someone with access to the download logs for
security.debian.org tried to estimate the number of machines
downloading security fixes for Debian, based on the assumption that
no-one is using a mirror for security fixes.  I am unable to find
those results using Google right now, but would recommend trying to
get hold of those numbers to get new lower bound on the number of
Debian installations.

As for the answer to your question, I have no idea. :) The amount of
contributors to popcon went up a lot when the popcon question started
to appear in the default installer in Etch, but I have no idea how
many actually replied yes to that question. :)

Happy hacking,
