Rising stars OS-wise in your web-hits?
« on: June 26, 2018, 10:10:03 PM »
Recently in my tiny segment of the net i've noticed a rise in Ubuntu devices hitting the sites.
Averaged across all sites it's :

1. Windows desktop.
2. IOS.
3. Android.
4. Ubuntu.

Anyone else getting the same or who'd like to share general device hits?

Very small sample on a new blog: lots of iOS.

Looks like Linux is still quite small as an overall percentage.

Android is clearly on the rise.  I am not sure if ChromeOS equals Android in the stats.  I'd love to get Amazon's data on OS and actual purchases.

- iOS - 45%, up 18% YOY
- Windows - 28%, down 5% YOY
- Macintosh - 14%, down 13%
- Android - 12%, up 11%
- Linux, 0.6%, up 108%

Desktop traffic only
- Windows, 64%, down 5%
- Mac - 33%, down 13%
- Linux - 1.4%, up 109%
- ChromeOS - 1%, up 1%

Mobile traffic only
- iOS, 77%, up 25%
 - Android, 23%, up 12%
 - windows, 0.04% (yep, 11 visits and still beating Blackberry), down 57%


Small e-comm site (7000 users last 30 days), all traffic (overall traffic down 12%)
 - Windows, 39%, down 9%
 - iOs, 25%, down 14%

Another site... 36,000 users last 30, up 10% YOY, brochure site

Windows, 67%, up 2% YOY
Mac, 17%, down 3%
iOS, 10%, up 100%
Android, 3%, up 451%
Linux, 2%, up 224%


Brochure Site that is, yes, still not responsive (they are finally in the middle of a rebuild now) , 86000 users last 30, down 21% YOY is losing traffic from every OS except 24% up for Linux

So it seems like there's a little push for Linux of late

I see data from a number of mid-sized sites and the variance site to site is massive.  Two examples of sites with similar audience sizes (approx 5m pageviews/month from US):

Automotive site
41% Android
26% Windows
28% IOS
6% Macintosh
<1% Linux

Health/Home remedies
42% IOS
37% Android
15% Windows
5% Macintosh
1% ChromeOS

Similar unique patterns across much of our book.  Unfortunately we don't measure OS as an aggregate. Might be interesting to see that by GEO for a billion+ pageviews per month, but it isn't a valuable metric for us.

Ergo, your Linux stats seem high.  Are those sites technology related?

Here is the Core for June.
Linux 47.9%
   - Android   1.7%
   - Ubuntu   0.4%
   - GNU Linux (Unknown or unspecified distribution)   45.7%
Windows 40.2%
iOS   0.5%
Mac   9.5%
Other   1.6%

Clearly not the norm.

Not in the least. I think it was two national parks travel sites, a corporate brochure site (non-tech), and I think there was a blog thrown in there.

Trend: Mobile OS's rising. This could be bad for desktop Linux.  We need a (not Android) Linux for tablet and Phone.

Interesting stats. I'm tiring of firefox, i use puffin on android now, great speed results in the tests i read.

FF has got so clunky over the past 5 years or so, great for security/privacy, and no netcore or aspnet vulnerabilities but clunking along, loading YT home page on FF is a joke, even on my gaming machine (4790k at 4.4).

Puffin lacks a few features but it'll obviously improve.

There is some interesting stuff going on with Linux development for ARM procesors laitly.  I think there is a good chance the work being done on the Raspberry Pi could end up in a Chromebook like device some day.

Also, there are lots of options to get Linux functionality into Android devices, like Gnuroot.  I have Debian  through Gnuroot on my cell phone.

Android is basically a shackled, web-centric Linux distribution made to be hard to break, but you can geek it out plenty if you want to.
