GOL user statistics discussion
Shmerl commented on 3 December 2019 at 8:24 pm UTC

A thread for discussion about user stats, trends and various suggestions on the topic.

Shmerl commented on 3 December 2019 at 8:27 pm UTC

Some suggestions for missing data points that come up often and would be interesting to monitor the trend for them:

1. Session type (X or Wayland).
2. Monitor refresh rate.
3. Adaptive sync usage.

Would be curios how many people use Wayland.
I am still on good old X.

You forgot another important one: vi vs emacs

I think one interesting stat would be which package management are u using (RPM, DEB, SLACK or ARCH). You could deduce that from the distro but I'm curious if there is ppl using flatpak or snap out there.

I'd say that can be taken out into a separate question, like "Are you using any sandboxing, containerization or virtualization for gaming?", since Flatpak and etc. are not package managers, but sandboxing technologies.

yeah I think that adding too much questions it might be a little overwhelming for newcomers. Another question might be are you using any console gaming emulator?, with a drop-down list with MAME, Dolphin, mupen64, etc. This could be good for statistics purpose but I said it could be a bit too much for newcomers. There's still quite a bunch of users that don't answer which PC components they have (RAM, CPU, etc) I bet it's because they don't know and they don't need to know to game, actually.

what about a different approach, according to some web statistics gamingonlinux.com has 4 thousands unique visitors per day, and I think the users that opt in for the survey are not more than 3 thousands, what about allowing users to report anonymous data?? (it would take some captcha or IP check so ppl don't report twice)
