This information is a few months old mostly because I’m lazy and creating the information is a pain in the ass.

Bonus - OS Downloads: http://d.stufft.io/image/021v383I0O2c <http://d.stufft.io/image/021v383I0O2c>

All of the above filter out anything that has an extremely small number of downloads so as not to overwhelm the graphs with a ton of small barely used things.
