I would guess that the majority of users these days get their ghc
packaged with a distro (eg Fedora, Debian, FreeBSD, Gentoo, Mandrake).
Windows users are probably the only major group who get it straight from

Collecting download statistics for these distros is extremely difficult
since they mirror their packages so widely. So don't be surprised if the
windows users come out very well represented!
