When Gimp was hosted on sourceforge, you could get statistics.


In case that link scrambles the sourceforge traffic for Gimp

I would assume that the level that dropped off when Gimp dropped sourceforge
continued at

I started using the GIMP when Tor Lillqvist's first Windows ports
appeared, and have used it on Microsoft platforms ever since.  These
days I don't use any Microsoft products - they finally became completely
obsolete in every context that matters to me - but I do know several
people who use the GIMP on Windows 7 and 10.  Considering the huge
Microsoft user base, I would be surprised if GIMP users on Microsoft
platforms don't outnumber users on Linux platforms by a substantial
margin - but as per messages above, that's very hard to determine.

We have a large majority of Linux users posting on the list here, but
that is most likely due to the strong connection between Linux and
technical education / computer literacy.  "Geeks" use mailing lists like
this one, most others don't suspect they exist.
