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.

If you want your details to actually be included in the monthly survey, be sure to head here and tick the box labelled "Include your PC details in our Monthly User Statistics?" and hit the "Update" button at the bottom, it's opt-in and you can uncheck it at any time not to be included in future statistics gathering.

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 this is still correct and it has been a long time since you updated, you can simply click here to continue to be included. If this isn't correct, click here to go to your User Control Panel to update it!

 

Note: Some people still have Ubuntu-GNOME and Antergos set as their distribution, since neither actually exist any more with Ubuntu-GNOME now just being Ubuntu and Antergos announcing their shut-down both will be removed soon as options.

Quoting: TorqachuI need a fast method to install arch

Here you go. :)

Quoting: Spud13yWouldn't uninstalling the programs from the Antergos repo and then removing the repo work just as well?

It might "work", but it's not Arch and won't be supported by the Arch community.

Can we have the old graphs back as well? Seeing the trends change over time is quite nice, and really not doable with these bar graphs.

Click the trends link, it's always been there.

Oh, I know. That doesn't stop people using Architect or whatever. :D

Quoting: DamonLinuxPLLiam, can you add new distros? For example OpenMandriva?
Do they have an SVG logo anywhere I can access and use?

Quoting: raneon
Quoting: MayeulCHmm, I use sway, but that wouldn't really fit the "window manager" category, would it?
I would be a bit curious regarding Wayland vs X :)

Me too, even if I assume the number of Wayland users are quite low in the group of gamers, I would like to see this added as an option so that it can be tracked in the monthly statistics. I'm maybe one of the few Plasma Wayland users even on my gaming machine.
How would be the best way to phrase it?

I propose to ask the question like for the distro architecture.

Desktop Session:
- X11
- Wayland

But probably it is necessary to avoid that people select wrong combinations like XFCE and Wayland, so maybe just add additional desktop environments:
- Gnome (Wayland)
- KDE Plasma (Wayland)
- Sway

What desktop session do you use, X or Wayland?

AMD GPUs usage among GOL users is now over 30%.

And yet another reminder that I haven't changed my setup much in a long while.
I think my GPU is dying, or the PSU, or both. Or neither? seems like all my issues started occurring after running the Blender 2.8 beta for a few hours, so either bad timing or the program somehow corrupted something. Though I doubt any sort of corruption would cause my PC to randomly shut off.

Indeed, might be your PSU if you are experiencing random shutdowns! :S:

A bad PSU is dangerous, I lost my previous graphics card that way.
That said, it might also be invalid shaders generated by blender, though those would tend to lock up the GPU/system instead of shutting the computer down.

Liam, I second Shmerl's phrasing. Seeing how many answer XFCE+Wayland would be indicative of the accuracy of the results.
