OS (distros) most used by our readers

What is promised is debt, and fair yesterday when I left the statistics of the countries that more readers contributed, several of you asked the statistics of the OS (distros) that our visitors were using.

Well, here they are 😀

And here specifically those of Windows:

Well, as you can see, we have more readers who use Linux than they use Windows, the difference is not much but hey ... difference in the end 🙂

    I need a life U__U

    1.    Manuel de la Fuente said

      Already, this is starting to look like how much bastard. ¬¬

      1.    v3on said

        sense of humor Manuel 😉

        1.    Manuel de la Fuente said

          I don't know what that is so get ready because I'm going to beat you up. 😛

          1.    v3on said


          2.    taregon said

            A little humor doesn't hurt 😉… 😀

          3.    Manuel de la Fuente said

            The next I make a comment like "I'm the first" (in whatever language) I will burn it at the stake while I laugh sadistically, then they will know my sense of humor. 😉

          4.    Carlos-Xfce said

            And the worst thing is not only that they put it in another language, but that they misspelled it. Besides showing a silly attitude, they write nonsense.

          5.    Carlos-Xfce said

            I don't understand what is happening with the "user agent". The comment I just made was from my Ubuntu 10-04 netbook in the Midori browser, and I just realized that it appears as if it was made from Windows!

            Now I am sending this message from Opera. I have never understood that "user agent".

  2.   Lithos523 said

    Many, many people connect from work, with Windows.
    And how few debianitas we are!
    Everyone to use Debian, no Ubuntu 😉

    1.    nonamed said

      How lucky are some who have time to spare at work for those things xD

    2.    nerjamartin said

      I myself lol from work I use Windows 7, I have no other choice! 🙂

    3.    tavo said

      I am on Debian but the user agent marks the little pen, the same thing happens with OpenSUSE, I suppose that the Debian detected is because the user modified them

    4.    Alebils said

      I use XP from my workplace, which is where I most consult the page.

    5.    taregon said

      I would only use ubuntu (in rare cases whose number does not exceed 5 times) in case I do not have my linux mint at hand to repair / rescue a hard disk = O

    6.    Christopher said

      We are more Debianites, the problem is that none of them change their useragent of those connected with iceweasel and only the penguin appears: S ...

      1.    nonamed said

        Anyway, iceweasel is only used by debian, you could modify the code to show the debian logo if iceweasel was detected

  3.   v3on said

    something is clear, many of us use ubuntu, and many lazy people do not change the user-agent xD

    1.    diazepan said

      I include myself. Although on the other hand there is still no icon for LMDE.

      1.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

        If you configure your UserAgent, the Mint icon will appear in the comments 😀

        1.    Diazepan said

          Yes, I could put the Linux Mint one but I could also put the Debian one. It does not matter.

          1.    Manuel de la Fuente said

            The correct one would be Linux Mint.

    2.    Manuel de la Fuente said

      Ahem. 😀

    3.    taregon said

      +5; D agree with you, I don't change mu user ...

  4.   Manuel de la Fuente said

    These statistics already seem more accurate to me, not as in the results of the survey where it says we have more archers than users of any other distro (although it surprises me that now we are so low: S).

    1.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

      Also to keep in mind that not all change the UserAgent and specify the distro 😀

      1.    Manuel de la Fuente said

        But if there are even more Gentoo users, I've never seen anyone around here with the Gentoo icon. : S

  5.   stories said

    to draw attention, windows 3.1 (2), that internet explorer will have.

    1.    Eduardo said

      Or they will navigate with the old and beloved Netscape Navigator 🙂

    2.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

      Many bots and SPAM generators change the OS and browser to try to evade the anti SPAM controls, so you can see up to IE5 or something like that haha.

      1.    Windóusico said

        Like what bots? A respect.

        1.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

          HA HA HA HA HA HA

      2.    Windóusico said

        How bad is the user agent, it does not detect my Windows 95.

        1.    v3on said

          ie9 + mac xD

          1.    Windóusico said

            ie5 sorry.

          2.    v3on said

            I know brother, but I had the same thought, with ie9 + mac jajjajajajajajaj you beat me xD

  6.   Eduardo said

    As it is a blog that hardly talks about Ubuntu, that there are almost 19% who come here using it is a fact to take into account. Will people be interested in seeing alternatives in other ditros?
    The Windows thing is not surprising since in the world of work it is what there is.
    In general, those listed as generic GNU / Linux should be those who, for example, downloaded Firefox, installed it manually and did not modify the User Agent. Which indicates that there are many handymen who come to this blog

  7.   Mauritius said

    I find it strange that Arch is so low. That is not the most popular, okay, but so low ??? I join to think that it is for not changing the User Agent

  8.   Marco said

    I find it even stranger that Chakra does not even appear between the distros !!!

    1.    truko22 said

      @marco which user agnet do you use, I modify it and here it detects chakra correctly, but it gives me a problem with some google and hotmail services.

      1.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

        Put it on the UserAgent line "WebKit" ... that should solve the problem with Google+ for example.

  9.   stories said

    good fun facts, trisquel, very high and a web-os.

  10.   Oscar said

    I think the same as @Marco.

  11.   Merlin The Debianite said

    Oh it's true I use debian but I don't change the user agent


  12.   pandev92 said

    What was the reason that Linux and Ubuntu Linux are different xD?

    1.    Courage said

      Hahahaha what a bastard

    2.    Gabriel said

      By the ArtWork (?

  13.   José Miguel said

    Just an observation, my Debian Squeeze does not recognize it as such but as GNU / Linux.

    Well, it's all in the family, but ...


    1.    Oscar said

      You have to modify the user agent, in the blog's tips repository you will find how to do it.

    2.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

      You must tell the Chrome UserAgent that you use Debian:

  14.   mitcoes said

    I use Sabayon with Xfce, and it does not recognize me, despite everything, we are many Sabayon people visiting this page, which I have also visited from Mint12 and LMDE because I read it from google reader

    1.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

      You must declare in your Chrome UserAgent the distro you use:

  15.   Alberto said

    I use Ubuntu, and I would like to try more distros, but it is that, although you may not believe it (and I really mean it) I have fallen in love with unity, and I miss it when I have tried other distros, such as Debian or Fedora, as well I always go back to Ubuntu a week after installing another distro.

    The reasons why I like Unity are many, which I will comment in some other place, but the main ones are the Lenses and the use of the screen.

    1.    nxs.davis said

      I share your opinion, my laptop has a 16: 9 screen and unity takes advantage of the screen quite well, I hope it could be installed in another distro ... I heard that in 64-bit arch it still can't, it hurts too bad, I'll continue with unity 😀

  16.   ianpocks said

    I have realized that with firefox you do not have to configure the user agent, but with midori it is not properly configured, and that I use the same distro

  17.   ianpocks said


    I've seen weirder things, like using ubuntu minimal… ..

  18.   pandev92 said

    Today I release my brand new iPad XDDD

    1.    v3on said

      you too? x)

  19.   pandev92 said

    Now my brand new IPOD LOL

  20.   pandev92 said

    Well now enough to play with the user agents xD.

  21.   Miguel said

    GNU / Linux first, no matter the distro. XD

  23.   ldd said

    have to come out of mine.

  24.   ianpocks said

    You see from work with windows, how do you know 🙂

    Like the square head of my boss who does not even know what an excel is, you start telling him to change the operating system ......

    Some of us have free time, a lot of free time at the currele.

    And even more when we work at night, luckily we always have pages like these to sweeten the night, oh my God if they are long (more than the legs of a Norwegian) 😉

  25.   Yoyo Fernandez said

    Pardus does not come out 🙁

  26.   VaryHeavy said

    The one that has scored the most for Windows has been Courage xDD

    1.    v3on said

      hahahahahaha xD

    2.    Courage said

      Because I have no more balls, I would continue with my Arch if I could.

  27.   Maxwell said

    What a joy to see Trisquel get noticed, you can see that there are many of us, how should I refer to Trisquel users? Maybe Trisquelites? Hopefully we continue to be more users of 100% free software 😉


    1.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

      Or Triskelians ... HAHA

    2.    snd6e said

      How do you know who uses Trisquel? When updating Abrowser it says 'Ubuntu' and if you change it to 'Trisquel' a Tux continues to appear.

      1.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

        I think Trisquel is not supported in the comments ... that is, the code that shows you the distro in the comments does not recognize Trisquel.

        If someone sends me the Trisquel logo (.SVG) to my email, or leaves me a download link, I add support for Trisquel as I have done with Pardus, Mageia, Chakra, etc 🙂

  28.   proper said

    Slackware Linux 64 bits 0.15%

    Will there be someone else or will it just be me? xDD

    1.    Manuel de la Fuente said

      xD You are a Forever Alone, just like Yoyo Fernández who uses Pardus and Courage with his beloved Windows. 😀

      1.    Courage said


        1.    Manuel de la Fuente said

          The point is, you use Windows and you love it. 😛

          1.    Courage said

            I do not love anything or anyone

  29.   Actor said

    It does not seem to me that justice is done to linux mint, since in the browsers they appear as ubuntu and many users who are new, do not know or have modified the user agent. Greetings anyway Good for Gnu / Linux. Greetings.

    1.    Manuel de la Fuente said

      It is the bad thing that each distro puts the user agent he wants, but if the user does not take care to correct it, there is nothing that can be done.

  30.   Arturo Molina said

    I am not offended by the numbers, I connect from Android 2.1, Lubuntu and sometimes from Win 7, because I have the dual boot on my laptop.

    1.    Courage said

      Is that being offended by numbers would be very childish

  31.   Fernando said

    I use chakra .. I hope there are people here who use it too.

  32.   heavynethole said

    Testing User Agent display. Regards!

  33.   heavynethole said

    Here testing the User-Agent again, I modified it by hand. It should be noted that this link is dead 🙁
    I saw it from the google cache.

  34.   Ivan Molina said

    And what is used more, openbox, gnome, unity?
