Hi, just wanted to share some download stats with you guys:

  10668 /qt5.0/alpha/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.0-alpha.7z
      1 /qt5.0/alpha/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.0-alpha.7z?51580699043405175974186249732156
     93 /qt5.0/alpha/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.0-alpha.tar.7z
   2436 /qt5.0/alpha/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.0-alpha.tar.bz2
   1616 /qt5.0/alpha/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.0-alpha.tar.gz
    796 /qt5.0/alpha/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.0-alpha.tar.xz
   6084 /qt5.0/alpha/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.0-alpha.zip

Since the first two and the last in this list indicate Windows downloads (due to the CRLF EOL, unless people use 'unzip -a'), we get a guesstimate of
  16753 Windows downloads
   4941 Linux/OSX downloads

~3.4x more Windows downloads than Linux and Mac OSX combined. Not hard facts, but still interesting.
