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

Posted by , | Views: 5,569

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.

How representative are these numbers compared with the wider Linux community?

The reason I ask is that I'm surprised Linux Mint sits at below 10%. It has been my impression that this is one of the main distros, maybe the most popular by now, due to how easy it is to get into for beginners (like myself). Here, however, Arch has a big following. Maybe because the site is occupied by fairly advanced Linux users?

I think gamers tend to more often use rolling distros, since they provide more recent drivers and kernel out of the box, which is a common need for best performance. And Arch is one of the most popular rolling distros. Though in practice it's not one of the easiest rolling distros to use.

It's not one of the easiest rolling distros to install. For me it's easy to use.

Just in case anyone can find any value in it, here is my custom Arch install guide:

Tailored specifically for my use case of course. Still, it could give someone a rough idea. You should gain a proper understanding of what you are doing from the Arch Wiki as well of course.

That alone gave me a scare ...and underlines the "not easy" part. Think I'll stick to Mint

I honestly think it is easier to both install and use than Windows. Especially the abomination called Windows 10.

I practiced installing Arch by commandline about half a dozen tries to iron out the kinks in my installing process. Once you learn how to install it, it's a very good learning experience. There's also Manjaro.
