Is that stat counting SL logins? The Hippo Viewer is used by many people for all grids, so some SL-only users might be in those stats?

Yes, many use Hippo for Second Life as well as OpenSim and vice versa, but it is a good rough estimate of how many might be using OpenSim. I regularly use Emerald or the SL Preview client to connect to my preview OpenSim instance that would be pretty impossible to count. Some more solid stats would be nice, but really tough to come by. Curious what gave that OS developer the impression that 15,000 sounds 'about right.' My feeling is that it is a little high. Maybe gabbing some numbers from the big OS grids would help get closer to a number with less margin for error.
