that's because iOS7 is really awesome, gives us the long awaited features and refreshed UI.

That's an opinion. The fact is there are some restrictions, but they can be worked around. That is a screw up. Whether it is deliberate or accidental is a matter for conjecture.

I would think that as iOS devices become more popular the rate of developers to users would drop. Of course there will be a greater number of developers but the number of users will outstrip developers. The rate would drop even as the absolute number goes up.

I also think these numbers represent non-developers getting and installing iOS 7 'illegally'. How can you blame them. Apple has iOS 7 plastered all over the front page of its web site.

Also over time developers now have more extra devices to dedicate to the new OS. And they have to because the change is so extreme.

iOS 7 beta 2 problems

Looks great but has been giving me major problems.
iOS 7.0.2 running on a factory unlocked iPhone 5 from UK. System has crashed and stalls on device initiation. Apple logo appears but spinner does not move. After a few minutes continually restarts. The device is recognized in iTunes but cannot sync. Restore iPhone option says that Find My iPhone must be turned off from the iPhone (which will not fully load). Within iCloud, the device is not listed as one of my devices. Unsure how to unbrick. Not happy.

I know plenty of people with ios 7, just cause its "cool". They're a lot of people on Craigslist charging to put 7 on people's phones

It is not a screw up, we also add license keys to our software, but it can be hacked in 2 minutes by anyone knowing their stuff. It is not to protect the software, it is to show the courts, that it was a malicious action and not just a mistake when they "illegally" copied/used the software.
