Whonix user base size

Are there any numbers on the size of the (Qubes)-Whonix user base? Actually I’m mostly interested in the shares of Windows/non-qubes-linux/qubes or ova vs qcow2 file downloads. The ova files work on linux too so this will be hard to separate, but you have to start somewhere …

Well Qubes alone is pushing 25K:

Most people have set up Whonix templates as part of installation, even though the number doing downloads over Tor is a very small subset. So that gives you a rough idea for that subset.

No idea re: plain Whonix. As far as I’m aware Whonix itself doesn’t keep any stats on users e.g. upload data in the background. So maybe distrowatch could give you a rough idea.

Some information published here: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Investors

Statistics as per 15 March 2019:

  • daily Whonix-Gateway ™ users: 3682
  • daily Whonix-Gateway ™ for VirtualBox downloads per day: 2761
  • monthly whonix.org Website visitors: ~ 300,000 (?)
  • last 30 days Whonix ™ forums page views: 1.1 M

Nice, thanks. But I was hoping it would be a little higher. Although, that is “daily use”. There would be many occasional users, boosting the number significantly in terms of total population base.

People like the wiki? :slight_smile:
