How widely in use is Windows Server 2003?

With WS2003 EOL just around the corner, it seems like many, many companies are still using it. This is helping make things….interesting….for a lot of people. Is there any data on what percentage of Windows Server users are still relying on WS2003?
Andy has a good answer, but here's a link to the official Windows server blog by Microsoft:

That might be of use to you for updated Windows Server information.
Microsoft estimated there were 10 million servers deployed at the beginning of the year, but migrations are accelerating. Estimates from Microsoft and analysts like Gartner and migration specialists have estimated there will be two to three million Server 2003 machines still running once we pass EOL on July 14.
