Reminder: Update your PC info for the next round of statistics updates

Posted by , | Views: 2,825

This is your once a month reminder to make sure your PC information is correct on your user profiles. A fresh batch of statistics is generated on the 1st of each month.

You need to be logged in to see when you last updated your PC info!

You can see the statistics any time on this page.

PC Info is automatically purged if it hasn't been updated, or if you don't click the link to remain in for 2 years. This way we prevent too much stale data and don't hold onto your data for longer than required.

If you want your details to actually be included in the monthly survey, be sure to tick the box labelled "Include your PC details in our Monthly User Statistics?" in the PC Info page in the User Control Panel and hit the "Update" button at the bottom, it's opt-in by default for new users.

Is it possible to add several gamepads model: I'm using two gamepads, x360 and Steam, I can only specify one.

The usual rule has been to include the one you use most. This isn't about who owns the most hardware after all.

Indeed, it'd be rather a list if I had to list all my interface devices.

btw, it's amusing to see the drastic dichotomy between AMD and Nvidia drivers, open vs bin. lol ~~

I've since moved back from a Ubuntu KDE setup to Manjaro MATE, no regrets. The only annoyance is some things can take quite a long time to compile, such as compilers themselves.

KDE is nicer an easier to customize absolutely, but kwin hates nvidia cards and I was running into too many headaches with applications unable to detect my displays correctly etc... shame.

When was the first GOL hardware survey?
Is once every 2 years not to long for the drop off?

It doesn't matter when the first was, that has no relevance on the drop-off.

The monthly data is gathered from what people have currently and honestly, who upgrades their PC multiple times a year? The answer is likely a minority of people and they are more likely to actually update their info here as well.

It would be useful to add VRAM in addition to regular RAM.

I agree with you that it is not useful for hardware info.
But on the other hand people who use Linux change their distro more often.
Maybe change the drop-off for distro's to like 1 year or 6 months perhaps?

Never done that in 20 years. :-)
