I've always been tempted to install something that would "phone home"
providing details about how K12LTSP is being used. No mattered how hard
I tried, I have not come up with a way to do it that I'd want running on my
own systems ;-)
As it is, there are a few metrics we can see.
First is the reports of big deployments. Jim already mentioned the
80,000 & growing in South Africa. There was recently an article that
Chile is deploying K12LTSP into 600 more schools. and so on.
I have my ftp/http/rsync logs, but no stats from the many mirrors.
A quick grep of the recent logs shows about 60,000 downloads & about
11,000 that have run apt, up2date, or yum against my repositories. Of
course most of the big deployments I know of keep their own mirrors/
