This strange pattern continues. It’s a huge change. Average share of page-views for GNU/Linux in March was 2.73% but in April it changed to 5.43% while the non-spiked days remained nearly constant at around 2.7%. The average share of page-views for the last 30 days was 5.93%. The highest day in April was April 24 at 15.73%. All the spikes occurred weekdays.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
