Ubuntu Eee 8.04 has been out for almost a month (25 days). Here’s a little bit of statistics to keep everyone in the loop and – to show off :)
We started a fan page on Facebook a couple of days ago, and there’s already 71 fans! We could work towards getting a better sex ratio though. If you’ve got a female friend with an Asus Eee, help her install Ubuntu Eee and get her onto the fan page ;)
The torrent was only hosted by Ubuntu Eee for a couple of days. Since then only the community has kept it alive. And talk about life! As we speak it’s being seeded by 77 people and downloaded by 5. That means there are 15 hosts / seeders for every downloader! Thanks guys and girls!
Is Ubuntu Eee comparable to Ubuntu? No, not at all. But Ubuntu Eee is comparable with some of the other Linux distributions over at DistroWatch’s Top 10 list! Ubuntu Eee is more popular than number 5: PClinuxOS, number 8: Dreamlinux, number 9: Sabayon and Mark Shuttleworth (creator of Ubuntu).
There are 367 total pages. This includes “talk” pages, pages about Ubuntu Eee, minimal “stub” pages, redirects, and others that probably don’t qualify as content pages. Excluding those, there are 109 pages that are probably legitimate content pages. It’s available in 7 languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian.
There have been a total of 880.361 page views, and 2.279 page edits. That comes to 6.21 average edits per page, and 386 views per edit.
There are 163 registered users.
The wiki is a Google PageRank 4, which is pretty decent.
Some more statistics (pdf)
We have gotten 10 donations with the average donation sum being $25. We actually get a donation every second day! We have recieved $254 in total.
So what does all this sum up to? How many people around the globe use Ubuntu Eee 8.04 every day? The statistics system over at Sourceforge have been down for half a month. But if Ubuntu Eee has been downloaded as the same pace as I’ve got statistics for, Ubuntu Eee has now been downloaded from Sourceforge almost 15 000 times!
Ubuntu Eee has been downloaded almost 5 000 times from Bittorrent. So by now Ubuntu Eee 8.04 has been downloaded 17 714 times.
We have a survey running (been running for two days). Already we have about 50 responses. The (early) responds tells us that for every download, it’s installed on 1.32 machines.
This means that Ubuntu Eee 8.04 got 23 381 users
which is a whole lot more than we could ever have hoped for!
