We recently ran a poll of our users to find out which version of Joomla their website uses. You can see the full results here:

One thing to note about these results is that they will be heavily biased towards the latest release of Joomla, 2.5. We are a site that sells Joomla extensions, the majority of our customers will be looking for extensions for a newly built site. For example, in our results there are no Joomla 1.0 sites (we don't sell 1.0 extensions), but there are Joomla 1.0 sites out there somewhere, probably in substantial numbers.
