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!

  • 5 reasons Valve's Steam Machine dream is still very alive
    Steam Machines? More like has-been machines, am I right? Actually, no: while many people are giving Valve's PC-console-hybrids the cold shoulder, this gamer reckons they'll be worth the wait. I realise that I'm part of a shrinking group still backing Valve's SteamOS-powered Linux boxes, and it's not difficult to see why the hype around them has all but evaporated. Several controller-related delays, U-turns by seemingly committed hardware partners and a lack of news from the top has made many think that Valve is blowing hot air.
