They write

  For the month of September we had the following downloads from the
  kitware server of cmake:
  3000 windows binaries or about 100 a day
  2501 source downloads about 83 a day
  448 OSX universal binaries 13 a day
  684 linux 22 a day
  193 older versions of cmake 2.2.3 and 1.8.3 6 a day

  So, that comes to 224 downloads per day. So, it would take
  CMake about 165 days for 37K downloads. I do not have running totals,
  but we have been going at a rate like this for some time now. I would
  guess that the total number of downloads exceeds
  250K. Also, this also does not take into account the various
  linux distros that offer cmake binaries. I have no idea how many
  downloads they are
