Filed under
Linux

Get excited! The results are starting to come in for the Linux App Request Survey we first posted at the beginning of January. There are some really interesting trends that we can see from the results. Let's take a look at what people are asking for and what countries they are from:

Top 10 Applications (last 21 days)
Rank Application
1. Quickbooks
2. Autocad
3. Photoshop
4. Itunes
5. Dreamweaver
6. Visio
7. Lotus Notes
8. Quicken
9. Macromedia Studio
10. Act!

Of those top 10 applications, two of them are financial management packages. Looks like there is quite a demand for that. It looks like there is a huge interest in the AUTOCAD arena, as well. Something that is very well worth noting is the demand for multimedia applications.

As well as what is in this data, it's interesting to see what isn't there, as well.
