Nop, it's not accurate, but you don't need precision at this point :)

Btw, gnome-sofware not cover some distro, like ArchLinux,
Ofc, and not only that, GNOME cannot be "measured" in any way if
won't release "something downloadable, installable, usable as one".

Hey Alex,

I don't know if this is what emmanuele said, it just look
like he said thas you can't know anything about GNOME's users scope.

Btw, gnome-sofware not cover some distro, like ArchLinux, so it far
from accurate.

Hello Emmanuele,

How you can see metrics when GNOME hasn't a metric system? :/
You can only see that by "perception" :)

I'd object to the point of getting "users back" until I see a metric
that gives me the number of a) Linux users and b) GNOME users before
and after any imaginary point in time (usually people that say "get
users back" use the 3.0 release, missing the larger point of "when
Ubuntu switched to Unity" one), but I'll just say: getting users back
from what? Why do we need to convert the small pool of Linux users,
when a larger pool of non-Linux users exists to be tapped?

In any case, my main issue was the argument that a dock is not going
to be a point of contention when a person decides whether or not to
use GNOME.
