The_Aquabat 25 Oct
I bought a new controller is a GameSir PRO T4, but here is the catch with a simple press of a button Linux can detect it both as a Switch controller or an Xbox One controller. I guess that's falls into the category "others".

Yes, that would be others. It's not what it's detected as but what it is.

There is a consolidation and expansion for all Linux gamers using Zen APUs without graphics card, which was.. all of 25 last month (There are dozens of us! Dozens!).

After a lot of back and forth, Liam went for my first suggestion to stick to AMD's stupid naming change in 2020 but include the former GPU codename and number of compute units next to it in brackets, so you can find your specific model based on the naming that every reviewer still uses.
Since AMD did not rename their pre-2020 models, those are still in there as well as "Radeon (RX) Vega * Graphics" while for APU models since 2020 it's just "Radeon Graphics (Vega *)" but the mobile variants are removed, since AMD makes no distinction there either.
I don't know if he changed the existing selection to their corresponding replacement or whether you have to do it yourself, check it either way!

Yes, many thanks for the feedback on AMD's idiotic naming.

99% of people were moved over but people should still check to be sure.

In the Main Gamepad graph I see separate bars for "Other" and "Others". What's that about?

Good catch, was a naming conflict. Gamepads had "Other" as an option, and the graphs automatically bundle anything outside the top 10 into "Others". I've now switched the question to be "Not Listed" to prevent it being confusing and updated all the data and everyone to the new naming.

Last month's statistics is now here and there is still an influx of new users it seems, with 21 more participants (+1%) and KDE continuing to gain ground.
50 more users have included their display refresh rate this month, mostly increasing fast models with 144, 165, and even 240Hz.

So now there is one more Vega IGP user. I still can't believe that I am the only one with a Vega 8 APU released since 2020 though. You moved all "Radeon Vega 8 Mobile Graphics" users over to "Radeon Vega 8 Graphics", which is the naming for models released prior to 2020. Can you manually check what CPUs they wrote down and if it's a Zen 2/3 (4000/5000 series) model, move those over to "Radeon Graphics (Vega 8)"? Preferably, you could just list all entries, and I tell you which is which.
Also, could you move the entries over retroactively for all prior months, like you did for the Gamepads graph, so I don't have to select both the old and new naming resulting in different colours and a gap in the trend graph?

Apropos Gamepads, that was an unfortunate choice. I mean not the change to Not Listed but capping it at ten bars and showing the rest as Others when there are currently only ten models to choose from anyway. Why not just show them all?
Also, Not Listed is missing from the graph for the last month, showing all other options gaining as a result.

And it would still be nice to have the trend graphs go back further than two years. All that data is otherwise lost in time, as you can (not) see when you try to look it up in the Internet Archive.

More will likely be added, so it's going to stay as-is there. For starters, I've been looking to expand on Logitech to list actual models making it more useful.

As it turns out, we were never showing Not Listed. It only showed for Gamepad due to my manual edit of the data for the new naming. I've decided to now include it for all as it makes sense, and is less confusing. This month has been re-run.

If you're doing this, maybe you'd consider adding 8BitDo to the list as well? I'm kind of curious whether I'm the only one in this community with one of their gamepads. I've got the SN30 Pro+, but looking at buying the Pro 2 as soon as they're back in stock locally.

Yeah good shout, I will likely look to do that too. Added to remind myself.
