Ok, let's say AOL 8.0 is released later this year, and it uses Gecko.

How fast would be the increase in Gecko user agents in Webmasters' server logs? In other words, how quickly do AOL users upgrade their software? I've read that AOL upgrades itself automatically without intervention from the user, but I've also read elsewhere that a lot of AOL users are still using version 5.0.
