Here's the data we've collected, covering October 2004 through January 2006:
My original statement was a little misleading. I don't have any way
to observe how often users *upgrade*, we can only measure what
ultrapeers are currently running. Presumably, new users download the
Also, now that I look at the figure again, I see that it's more than
"a small percentage" still running the old version after 2 months.
However, new versions do seem to consistency get more than 50% market
share within 2 months.
I should also add that by "version", I'm ignoring the third value in
the version number (mostly because including those would make the
graph impossible to read :) ).
