No, literally,


    From the first few minutes of the release, downloads of the various windows
    installer were running at many times the rate as that for other platforms
    (there had until now been no single Haskell package for Windows, after all).
    This surprised us. By the end of July 2009, 90 days later, there had been:

        * 114,790 downloads of the Windows installer (!!)
        * 2,790 installs of the generic unix source tarball (complementing the
            packages provided on each distro).

    On June 1, the Mac OSX package went live, complementing the MacPorts GHC version.

        * 1,300 installs of the Mac OSX package.

Since that was published there have been another 13.9k downloads of the Windows installer
