How's Android faring when school begins? [platform distribution]

The beginning of September is one of the most beautiful times of the year.  The air has that crispness to it, coffee tastes better in the morning, kids are back to school, routines return...

And we get the new numbers from the Android dashboard about how the various versions are doing.

So, who has what version out there?

Here's their chart:

VersionCodenameAPIDistribution
2.2Froyo82.4%
2.3.3 -
2.3.7
Gingerbread1030.7%
3.2Honeycomb130.1%
4.0.3 -
4.0.4
Ice Cream Sandwich1521.7%
4.1.xJelly Bean1636.6%
4.2.x178.5%

For those of you who know me, you know I like to make my own charts, as I've been following these graphs for quite some time now.  Here's how it looks currently



Doesn't it look funny in the last bit there?  There's a jump, reason is they've now eliminated 1.5 (previously), 1.6 and 2.1 (just this update).  I can't see 3.2 lasting much longer either at just 0.1%.  ICS is continuing is downward trend while small gains are made up with JB (~2% for each)
