LWD - March 2010
March 4th 2010

This is a continuation post for my Linux World Domination project, started in this May 2008 post. You can read the previous post in the series here.

In the following data T2D means "time to domination" (the expected time for Windows/Linux shares to cross, counting from the present date). DT2D means difference (increase/decrease) in T2D, with respect to last report. CLP means "current Linux Percent", as given by last logged data, and DD means domination day (in YYYY-MM-DD format), and DCLP means "difference in CLP", with respect to last logged data.

Project T2D DT2D DD CLP DCLP
Einstein already crossed - September 2009 54.80 +3.45
MalariaControl >10 years - - 12.12 +0.17
PrimeGrid >10 years - - 11.78 +1.47
POEM >10 years - - 11.52 +0.69

SETI >10 years - - 8.12 +0.05
QMC >10 years - - 8.11 -0.12
Spinhenge >10 years - - 4.46 +0.09

The numbers (again) seem a bit discouraging, but the data is what it is. Now MalariaControl goes up (it went down in previous report), but QMC goes slightly down. All others go up. The Linux tide seems unstoppable, however its forward speed is not necessarily high.

As promised, today I'm showing the plots for Spinhenge@home. In next issue, QMC@home.

CLP means "current Linux Percent", as given by last logged data, and DD means domination day (in YYYY-MM-DD format), and DCLP means "difference in CLP", with respect to last logged data. I have dropped the "Confidence" column, for it gave little or no info.

Except for the good news that Einstein@home has succumbed to the Linux hordes, the numbers (again) seem quite discouraging, but the data is what it is. All CLPs but MalariaControl have gone up (which goes down less than in previous report). The Linux tide seems unstoppable, however its forward speed is not necessarily high.

No market for Linux games? The Koonsolo case
September 19th 2009

I've read via Phoronix the case of the indie PC game producer Koonsolo, which sells a game for both Windows, Mac and Linux. The interesting thing is that, as you can read on Koonsolo's blog, the Linux version is being sold in larger numbers than the Windows one!

Apparently a 40% of the visitors or the Koonsolo site use Windows, vs less than 23% for Linux. However, despite the majority of visitors using Windows (there are even more Mac visitors than Linux ones), the Linux version sales amount to a 34% of the total sales, whereas Windows sales are only 23%. Visit the site for some more numbers and comments.

LWD - June 2009
June 2nd 2009

This is a continuation post for my Linux World Domination project, started in this May 2008 post. You can read the previous post in the series here.

In the following data T2D means "time to domination" (the expected time for Windows/Linux shares to cross, counting from the present date). DT2D means difference (increase/decrease) in T2D, with respect to last report. CLP means "current Linux Percent", as given by last logged data, and DD means domination day (in YYYY-MM-DD format).

For the first time, data for PrimeGrid is included.

Project T2D DT2D DD CLP Confidence %
Einstein 4.5 months +3.5 months 2009-10-14 44.51 (+2.42) 6.4
MalariaControl >10 years - - 12.64 (+0.09) -

SETI >10 years - - 8.00 (+0.06) -
Spinhenge >10 years - - 3.87 (+0.28) -

Mmm, the numbers seem quite discouraging, but the data is what it is. On the bright side, all CLPs have gone up, some almost a 0.3% in 3 months. The Linux tide seems unstoppable, however its forward speed is not necessarily high.

As promised, today I'm showing the plots for PrimeGrid, in next issue QMC@home.

Did I say "bimonthly" in my last report? Mmm, that was 3 months ago... You can read an intro for my Linux World Domination project in this May 2008 post.

As usual D2D means "days to domination" (the expected time for Windows/Linux shares to cross, counting from the present date), and DD2D means difference (increase/decrease) in D2D, with respect to last report. CLP means "current Linux Percent", as given by last logged data, and DD means domination day (in YYYY-MM-DD format).

LWD - December
December 2nd 2008

I will start making this section bimonthly, otherwise the only content of my blog will consist on it. Besides, the new information generation rate is not enough to require more often updates.

You can read an intro for my Linux World Domination project in this May 2008 post.

As usual D2D means "days to domination" (the expected time for Windows/Linux shares to cross, counting from the present date), and DD2D means difference (increase/decrease) in D2D, with respect to last report.

LWD - October
October 30th 2008

Hey, October almost passed and I didn't write the montly report on LWD. I might make it bimontly, to produce less spam in the blog. You can read an intro for my Linux World Domination project in this May 2008 post.

As usual D2D means "days to domination" (the expected time for Windows/Linux shares to cross, counting from Feb 3, 2008), and DD2D means difference (increase/decrease) in D2D, with respect to last report. CLP means "current Linux Percent", as given by last logged data. The new datum DD means domination day (in YYYY-MM-DD format).

As a new feature, I am now fitting the curves (to predict Windows/Linux crossing) to first degree polynomials, but taking only the last N points so that the coefficient of regression is close to 1 (yes, I am being purposely unclear and arbitrary on this subject).

Project D2D DD2D DD CLP Confidence %
Einstein 882.1 +571.9 2011-03-31 35.17 (+0.27) 37.3
MalariaControl 6890.0 +6268.8 2027-09-10 12.26 (+0.06%) 0.3
POEM 3613.9 - 2018-09-21 9.81 (+0.05%) 0.4
QMC >10k - - 7.88 (+0.0%) -
Rosetta >10k - - 7.91 (+0.11%) -
SETI >10k - - 7.86 (+0.03) -
Spinhenge >10k - - 3.21 (+0.2%) -

OK, the data seems discouraging. The crossing day (DD) seems to be further away every month, instead of closer. Recall however that the only (half) reliable data are the current (and past) percents. All the rest is speculation, and the fits change wildly depending on the function used to make them, and the number of points fit.

Starting with this month's issue, I might post pictures of the evolution plots. Today I'm showing the plots for Einstein@home. Next month: Malaria@home.
