OpenOffice.org: four million downloads in the last twelve months

Sometimes today, a sunny Italian Sunday, someone will download for the fourth million time the Italian version of OpenOffice.org. In the same timeframe, the number of PCs sold in Italy has been around six million. Of course, downloads do not count installed copies, because there might be multiple downloads for the same PC or from the same person (for instance, I have downloaded OpenOffice.org six times, because I own a PC and a Mac and I have downloaded versions 2.3.1, 2.4 and 2.4.1), but also a single download for multiple installations (as in the case of enterprises or schools). In addition, downloads do not include installations from the CDs included in the trade press and Linux distributions, where OpenOffice.org is already included as standard in the basic configuration.
