I don't know exactly how these statistics are are generated, but keep in
mind that:

1) The Smolt service isn't launched by default (if I remember
correctly).
2) A lot of people don't send Smolt profiles during the installation
process. Maybe the don't because they don't have network access during
the installation (think wifi).
3) After an initial submission, their profile never gets updated.

This leads me to think that these statistics are probably biased?
