Linux Distributions Trends

Filed under
Google

I am sure that by now all the world has already found out and tested the cool new tool google launched yesterday: google trends… It is a very nice tool that allows you to see the searches done by peoples, on any keyword you are interested, have evolved over time. This doesn’t show ‘exact’ results, but instead is shows a nice graph with a visual representation of the ‘trend’. Another cool feature is that you get also some details about spikes on searches (on the left), and information about the locations of the peoples doing the searches (on the bottom of the page). You can also restrict the trend search by region or only some year or month in time. Very cool.

The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
