What are the most popular E-Commerce/shopping cart software suites?

Specifically, I'd like to know user-base size (or at least market share percentages). For example, I know that osCommerce is a popular E-Commerce solution. I'd like to know how many web sites are running osCommerce, or at least how much market share osCommerce has. I'd like this list to include both hosted and unhosted solutions.

Hosted solutions are those that don't need to be installed on a web server. They 'run' off of the service provider's servers. Examples of hosted solutions include: Yahoo Merchant, goEmerchant, GoDaddy, etc.

Unhosted solutions are those that need to be installed on a vendor's web server. The vendor must secure web hosting and install the software to their web host. Examples of unhosted solutions include: Zen Cart, osCommerce, Joomla, Shop Script, Ubercart, etc.

Can someone please help me find some data on this market? It seems like a question that would be asked over and over again - I'm surprised that it't not easier to find an answer to this question.

P.S. Please note that I've already found one extensive report on this topic, but it is outdated and its accuracy is questionable.

I can't throw numbers at you, but the other name that comes up repeatedly is zencart, amongst free/OSS shopping cart suites.
