There is an even better way : have a page with 2 plain html links on your
site that says :

-html version
-flash version
-i don't know

And see who choose what. ;-)

The only stats worth looking at are the stats from your site. Moreover,
that's not because someone has flash that he wants to use it. Give people
the choice.

Let's imagine there was a flash version of google. Do you think the number
of people using the flash version would be the same number as the people
having the flash pluggin according to the stats? I doubt.

Personnally I don't trust stats, I trust users.

My $0.02...
