Fedora 8 launches with 54.000 installs

In the article “2007: The year of candy, not innovation” I mentioned how nice it would be to see Mac OS X sales statistics mirrored for Linux distributions. Ars Technica has an article about first week adoptions for Fedora 8. With 54.000 installs in the first four days it’s not quite close to the 2 million for Mac OS X, but -as the article writes- Fedora 7 would climb to 1 million in 12 weeks.

If you want to track the statistics for this new release, just go to this page.

  1. And considering this is just one distro… 😀

  2. Oh yeah. This article refers to a tool that collects hardware data from installed Linux machines http://liquidat.wordpress.com/2007/11/13/smolt-passes-the-200k-entries-mark/

    I don’t know if I would like it to be installed by default, but the option to enable it should be there. In that way more data will be available about the install base.
