Unfortuantely it only counts packages installed with apt - (and maybe from the official repos, but I haven't looked under the hood).
It's not amazingly accurate, but I think goes a long way to show how close we are to complete freedom :).
for most people it's the graphics & restricted modules that's holding them back.. also the generic linux kernel too for some reason.. I think you can look into the results more thoroughly.
