Join us on our own very special Reddit: /r/Linuxers

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.

Next month will include chart generation to show what desktop people are using across Wayland and x11.

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!

It's a bit sad only 2k people have filled out the statistics. I was expecting GoL readership to be much bigger!

Our readership is huge (we get half a mil traffic monthly), but like all news sites you cut that down dramatically for actually registered users and then down again for people that interact with something like this.

Big change: switched to OpenSUSE Tumbleweed after accidentally deleting part of my home folder. Not much of importance was lost, but it was a good excuse to give my system some fresh air.

Am I right in guessing that the number of people filling out the survey dropped when you changed it to logged-in users only? That makes the results much more robust, but it cuts out a lot of casual entries that probably came from reddit and other high-traffic places.

While I am a happy member of this site, I have been minimizing the ridiculous number of online logins that I have to maintain. About every 6 months I go through and try to figure out any that I don't use and where I can cancel my membership.

Others may be in the same boat...

This survey has always been registered users only. The one before that, was a long time ago and was community-run. Even back then, it was often lower than what we have now so we're actually doing quite well on this system.

Yes, I was thinking of the old one (long long ago...). It is good that you have more consistency now.

@Liam Dawe You should have stats for people with multiple Linux computers. I have three Linux computers two mostly for gaming and one more for finances but still game on it but between the two gaming ones I play a lot on both. One gaming computer is Arch and the other is Pop!_OS. Both are AMD one is 8350FX and the other is Ryzen 5 both have AMD GPUs one 570 and the other 580. I still game a lot on my laptop which is I5 but mostly stuff like Heroes of Might and Magic 3 HD. Anyways I thought I would throw that out there to you.

I wonder more not about the small overall number of stats survey entries, but about that it's gradually dropping. That doesn't correspond to the trend of overall number of visitors increasing. So something must be going on.

I've been over this before, most people who fill it out do so once and then don't ever update it so each month a bunch of people are removed even if some are added. Looking at it right now, while the cut-off is two years, just as an example there's 745 people who haven't even updated theirs in a single year. Plus 1,761 people filled out their details but choose not to be in the survey (for extra privacy it's opt-in whereas originally it was not).

There's nothing special going on.

I agree with darthbasselope! I have three computers myself: The one I reported which is my main computer, a Windows/10 described in my "about me" and a recently installed one with Proxmox+Ubuntu server for backup that I also use to test different Linux. distributions in Virtual Machines
