It seems that this doesn't work very well. From looking at the data,
1200 machines are reporting installations, and of those 1200 only 37
used gdm in the last 30 days and only 42 used firefox in the last 30
days? And only 120 used dpkg? In fact, it appears that only 120 of the
1200 computers were used at all in the last 30 days.

Is there some explanation for why the votes seem so strange?
