sergeykishHello, I just found about Popularity contest https://popcon.ubuntu.com/ It looks good - 2802536 submissions, but inside ... bash - 2798890 installations / 7649 usage, firefox - 2580554 installation / 3519 usage, is it broken? Debian PopCon has no such problems19:34
sergeykishis this right channel? that's part of the infrastructure...19:34
oerheksthose stats are over a large period of time, more than 10 years19:37
sergeykishyes, but 2798890 is not comulative19:38
sergeykishand that's Debian https://popcon.debian.org/19:39
sergeykishbash - 200905 installations vs 160484 usage, firefox-esr 89756 installations vs 43723 usage - that's possible19:42
sergeykishconsidering zsh - 14409 / 7564, chromium - 28688 / 13407, chrome - 22229 / 13773, quite organic19:44
sergeykishI've found snapshots https://flamingspork.com/popcon-historical/data/20:31
sergeykish2011-01-01: bash - 182722 / 1624035, firefox - 152481 / 151677420:33
sergeykishSo it looks like in 2011 there were 180000 popcon users and now about 800020:40
oerheksthe anon stats in current installs end up here, i think >> https://ubuntu.com/desktop/statistics20:45
sergeykishoerheks: that's another system20:54
sergeykishubuntu-report20:55
sergeykishPeople freak out and remove popcon (which is not activated I believe)20:56
sergeykishhm, it was enabled by default https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/popularity-contest/+bug/29861721:01
sergeykish(2008)21:02
