Evolution vs Thunderbird

I did a simple test that shows strong that Evolution is not the most
used Ubuntu email client.
What E-mail Client do we use on Ubuntu?
Checked 100 of the last emails to this list and the results are
All Others 30
The results show that Thunderbird is used 3 times more often
than Evolution and more times than All Others. I was surprised at all
the Gmail use.
Another result is as follows. All 100 users have Evolution on
their computer but only 12 are using it. One third of the users choose
to download Thunderbird and use that.
Now you can find all kinds of possible problems with this data. But
you can't find a single problem with the data. The data is REAL. Others
have non-statistical data that show Evolution being used more than all
others. It can't be used.
If anyone wants to find fault in my data feel free to get 100 emails
from a known Ubuntu list and present it just as I did (see above). If it
is even a little different than mine I will be surprised.
