This site has some info on currently connected nodes;

Also, this is a good site for info on network activity;

Connected nodes is a poor measure of users, as several sites like instawallet, blockchain.info, mtgox etc. have hundreds or thousands of users.

How Many Bitcoin Clients are there?
Are you asking how many different clients exist, ,or how many of those clients are connected to the network at any particular moment in time, or how many copies of the clients have been downloaded, or how many clients have ever connected to the network, or how many individuals might be actively in control of some bitcoin, or how many individuals are likely to have ever been in control of any bitcoin, or how many addresses have any bitcoin assigned to them at any particular moment in time?

The quality of posts has dropped to such a low level that all users who are participating in a paid signature campaign are added to my ignore list. If you'd like a copy of the list to improve your browsing experience, you can find it here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=973843.0 (Updated 2016-1-4)

+1. I don't connect my client usually, and I only do it like once a week. I'm sure there's other people like me too.
