I haven’t updated the usage stats in quite awhile, so I’m playing catch up here! To summarize, overall Paint.NET is up by about 8.7% for the last few months, and the percentage of Vista users has increased by a surprising 25%. The 64-bit percentage hasn’t really budged. The various languages moved around a little, primarily due to a bug with the server configuration that was not allowing Polish users to update at all (the server was trying to treat any *.pl* file as a Perl script). This bug was fixed in mid-May.

Here are the raw numbers, where percentages indicate the percentage for that row of the total Paint.NET user base. The “total hits” represents the total downloads for all the update manifest files. These files have a filename that contains the OS version, “bitness” (x86 or x64), and the language. By default, Paint.NET will download an update manifest up to once every five days. It only downloads the manifest when the program is started, so if you leave Paint.NET open for two weeks straight (for example) it will only download a manifest once.

Please note that the numbers for languages in “red” do not indicate that Paint.NET was displayed in that. It only indicates what Paint.NET detected as the default or preferable locale for that system. In other words, these statistics do NOT distinguish between (for example) a Russian user who is seeing Paint.NET in English, and a Russian user who downloaded a Russian language pack and is now seeing Paint.NET in Russian.

Also, please note that these are stats for the Paint.NET application, not the website.
