Progress on our User Statistics Page has continued, feedback requested

Updates will be listed at the bottom as I go.

Since I am sick with Tonsillitis I decided to take a quick break from news and work on something else. Today I have updated the User Statistics Page and here's what's new.

Three new Linux Distributions join the ranks:
- PCLinuxOS
- Netrunner
- ZorinOS

So we now have a choice of 25 different distributions. We have 339 people who claim their Distribution is "Not Listed", so it would be good if you could check and let me know if yours is still missing and if not, select it to help us get accurate stats.

Also, I have implemented an expandable full details box (click it) for a full list with percentages and total users. So now the graphs are a "Top 10" and the expandable box will have more info. This is something that was requested before, so I was happy to add it in.

Now, what else what you guys like this page to display? I'm keen to make it as useful as possible for you guys!

I've also done a bunch of back-end work towards having the ability to select the date of the graphs you want to see, so in future there will be a dropdown box or something for say "july 2016, august 2016, sep..." you get the idea.

Visit the User Statistics page for the fresh stats right now: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/users/statistics

Updates
Okay, so now the RAM and Resolution graphs work properly again, those are the two that use natural number sorting, rather than highest to lowest like all the others.

I have now also enabled the javascript for the graphs, so hovering over a bar will now give you the percentage. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Everything under 14GB RAM is missing!

I would love to see some statistical progression of different hardware trends, like a graph for the GPU trends as an example, what vendor is gaining and so on... just with data for each month, quarter or year, what ever makes sense

Yeah working on that ATM, it's tricky because people want it sorted by RAM, not just by total users. Have to work out a decent natural sorting method for it.

My personal setup is still missing the distribution: BunsenLabs

Are you keeping the 'history' of these stats? Like, keeping a backup of all of the stat refreshes?

Would just be cool 6 months, a year etc down the line to see how things have changed since the statistics page launched.

Thanks for keeping this up!

Graphs should be sorted in descending order, so the most used item should be on top. For example, distribution list should start with Ubuntu on top. Currently it's counter-intuitive. I'd keep current sorting for number-based graphs, like RAM or Resolution, it makes sense in those cases.

I'd like to see percentages, not just total numbers, for example on mouse over. Currently it's extremely hard to say e.g. how many percent of people use an AMD graphics card, or, even worse, GNOME Desktop.

Wow, interesting to see that KDE is topping the DE list.

On that note, you should maybe consider adding KDE Neon in the distro list. Not sure how widely used it is at the moment since it's so new, but it does seem to be the top suggested distro lately when I see people asking about KDE

I agree, I'm doing that now.

Actually, I'd like to see a category for "Tiling Window Managers", or see that added as a choice under "Desktop Environment".
