Android's "Who's using What version" has been released

So, the common sticking point of any iOS user to an Android user is "yeah, well, I'm on the latest version".  Which could be very well true.  So who is using which version?

Google releases their numbers monthly and the latest just hit the dashboard for your viewing

Data collected during a 7-day period ending on December 7, 2015.
Any versions with less than 0.1% distribution are not shown.

Essentially, there's still a lot of people using KitKat (which is a wholly stable build for the most part and with the right Google Play Services has most of the features you'll need).  But KK is now almost 2 years old.  Marshmallow just came out only recently, and there really hasn't been a rush to get a hold of the new Nexus devices and only some of the recent ones are compatible.  So there'll be a slow trickle into that version.

But Lollipop is still growing strong.
