That way comparing the number of forum users doesn't really make clear what the real number of users is.

Also if you look at distrowatch (I know, I know, it's really not very accurate, although it's something), mint has had much larger numbers than Ubuntu since Mint 12 - for the six month span Mint's first with 4363 hits per day, and Ubuntu's second with 2077 hits per day, which is a significant margin that Mint has kept up for a while. I also completely agree with the statement that Mint just works, as opposed to Ubuntu which there are lots of problems with .
Edit: Ok, I feel kind of stupid, but 4700 active members in the Ubuntu forums are the number online, not the ones who have visited recently . (I took out that part)
