Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Stats on OS being used

Ubuntu has Eclipse 3.8.1 [1] ... I hope the majority are not using this.

 I'm surprised by this, I always expect Linux to be under-represented by download stats due to distro packaging.

While that’s true, I don’t think Debian/Ubuntu/Mint have very up-to-date packages so those users have to download the latest from And with apologies to our friends from Red Hat, Debian based distros still lead by a long shot.

In the past, the Mac numbers were very low compared to Linux. Interesting to see it catch up. It is a platform for our future growth and I think we need to make sure it’s getting enough love. It’s funny, but you go to EclipseCon and I see way more Mac’s than other platforms so you’d think that would already be the case.
