Interesting demographics

I found it very interesting that most of my visitors hail from Europe as opposed to the US. I really expected to see the other way around, but I guess lumping all of Europe into one category helped. Europe is a big ole place. Big Grin

I also found it extremely interesting that there were 4 visitors from Antartica. I was fairly sure Antartica was unsettled except by a few scientists and various other kinds of workers part of the year. If my concept of Antartica is correct - isn't that wonderful? I'd love to hear more of the population in that area - how many, how long, etc. Or maybe it was penguins. Big Grin

I'm glad Africa, India, and Asia had some representation as well. Isn't the internet a wonderful thing?

I guess the most surprising was all the extraterrestrial visitors I have. This might explain all those lapses in time I keep having. Big Grin

Thanks to all who participated in this poll.

Re: Interesting demographics

Almost 500 million people live in Europe vs 300 million in the US. So it isn't such a surprise half of the voters are European. Some countries are pretty Linux minded, e.g. Germany (home of SuSE) and France (Mandrake). And Finland of course Smile Unlike the Netherlands (where I live), people over here are much more Windows oriented (and Microsoft in general). Nowhere MSN has a larger market share and Firefox has a smaller one. What a shame.

Maybe you should plot some graphs from your webserver statistics? Per country I mean. That should be interesting!

re: I live in...

I voted for "Galaxy Far Far Away" since I've lived in Germany, Japan and the US, plus I didn't want ATANG1 to be left alone in this category!

  • The Linux Migration: April 2017 Progress Report
    In December 2016, I kicked off a migration to Linux (from OS X) as my primary laptop OS. In the nearly 4 months since the initial progress report, I’ve published a series of articles providing updates on things like which Linux distribution I selected, how I’m handling running VMs on my Linux laptop, and integration with corporate collaboration systems (here, here, and here). I thought that these “along the way” posts would be sufficient to keep readers informed, but I’ve had a couple of requests in the last week about how the migration is going. This post will help answer that question by summarizing what’s happened so far. Let me start by saying that I am actively using a Linux-powered laptop as my primary laptop right now, and I have been doing so since early February. All the posts I’ve published so far have been updates of how things are going “in production,” so to speak. The following sections describe my current, active environment.

Lumina Desktop Gets lumina-mediaplayer

  • 1.3.0 Development Preview: lumina-mediaplayer
  • Lumina Desktop Gets Its Own Media Player
    There's now yet another open-source media player, but this time focused on the BSD-focused Qt-powered Lumina Desktop Environment. Lumina Media Player is one of the new additions for the upcoming Lumina 1.3. Lumina Media Player's UI is quite simple so far and allows playing of local audio/video files along with basic audio streaming -- currently implemented for Pandora.
