Because I have much better things to do with my time. Really? This is what you want to argue about, that Ubuntu is not running on enough machines to justify my statement that it has a userbase that is quite impressive? What kind of statistics are you hoping to see, and where would they come from? Maybe Google can give us some numbers, based on the browser ID strings they track. Try filing a lawsuit; it worked for Viacom. Let me know what you come up with.
I'm willing to take the fact that it's won the top spot in every desktop distro contest for the last few years, it's #2 on the Linux Counter list just a point or two behind Debian (which is pretty good considering that that list is unknown beyond long-time, harder-core Linux users--not necessarily the prototypical Ubuntu user), that it's being pre-installed on Dell desktops and laptops, that it's available from Best Buy both online AND boxed in the store, etc. etc.
If that's not good enough for you, then fine: we'll just agree to disagree, because I don't have the energy to argue about something so silly.
