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!

He was just kiddin around with ya.

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!

Fedora 24 Gnome & HP Pavilion + Nvidia setup review

This was an interesting ordeal. It took me about four hours to finish the configuration and polish the system, the maniacal Fedora update that always runs in the deep hundreds and sometimes even thousands of packages, the graphics stack setup, and finally, all the gloss and trim needed to have a functional machine. All in all, it works well. Fedora proved itself to be an adequate choice for the old HP machine, with decent performance and responsiveness, good hardware compatibility, fine aesthetics and functionality, once the extras are added, and only a small number of issues, some related to my laptop usage legacy. Not bad. Sure, the system could be faster, and Gnome isn't the best choice for olden hardware. But then, for something that was born in 2010, the HP laptop handles this desktop environment with grace, and it looks the part. Just proves that Red Hat makes a lot of sense once you release its essential oils and let the fragrance of extra software and codecs sweep you. It is your time to be enthused about this and commence your own testing. Read more Also: Inkscape 0.92 available in Fedora
