OO downloaded 60 million times since October 2009

The BBC has a story called “How open source is growing up” about the growth of open source software. That is no laughing matter. However, what’s funny about the story is that under the section “Catching up”, it claims that, and I quote:

For instance, statistics suggest that there are about 40 to 50 million users of Linux desktops, while Open Office has been downloaded 60 million times since October 2009.

That’s “since October 2009”. It’s July 2009 now, so somehow a time machine has been stashed away somewhere. Here’s a screenshot of that hilarious typo, or you can visit the above link and read the story for yourself.
