I suspect most sites use whichever version comes with their chosen

2.4 should gain more usage now that Ubuntu Trusty is released as their
new LTS version.  Similarly, when Debian releases Jessie there should be
another bump.

I see fedora has had it at least since fedora 19, maybe earlier.  But it
is not in centos or rhel.

SuSE upgraded to 2.4 with SuSE 13.1, based on the versions in their repo.
13.1 is less than 6 months old.

I see in their svn that FreeBSD has separate 22 and 24 ports starting
with RELEASE_9_2_0.

Based on their cvs, it looks like NetBSD has had an apach24 port for
about two years now.  Early adopters it seems.

In short, as people update to newer versions of their chosen distributions
adoption of apache 2.4 should accelerate.
