GNU/Linux Is On The Move In Dominica

Yes, GNU/Linux is on the move in Dominica. The government made a deal with the government of India recently, to promote GNU/Linux at Dominica State College. “Unknown” took off at that time… GNU/Linux continues to grow slowly.

    DrLoser sorry common surveys performed on OS usage have a habit of being less than 10 000 people.

    Next is when you compare population 75000 as a sample set.

    Really because you are that lazy you don’t do research DrLoser you make un unrequited bull crap.

    CWDOM one of the large ISP in Dominica. Turns out to be a deep packet inspection black hole. So you can bet most of the people appearing as unknown in Dominicia are CWDOM customers having there user agent string obliterated by the ISP deep packet inspection.

    Every area with massively increasing unknown values in Statscounter has ISP or ISP’s investing in deep packet inspection.

    If you add up Android/Linux, Unknown (probably Linux), and Other (probably related to Linux) you get more than half the total traffic. It looks like StatCounter deliberately chooses to under count Linux distributions.

    Indeed, ram. You would clearly be correct to identify this as yet another conspiracy, but in this particular case I have to disappoint you. Keep taking the tablets, however.

    No, you’ve caught me here. I’m Astro-turfing one Caribbean island at a time. You’d be surprised to learn how little money it cost to make StatCounter turn a “blind eye” to “other” in this case. I shall not divulge my evil methods … suffice to say that I had no need to look further than the interstices behind my sofa.

    I may even Crowd-Source this idea. One Caribbean Island, One Sofa, One Reich!

    A population of 72,000. That’s basically twice the size of the capacity of the Football Stadium in Fort Graham, just to put it into local terms that won’t cause your nose to bleed, Robert.

    In other words, given that ridiculous variance … not anything that a rational human being would care about.

    A more interesting question. Are the Blue Bombers playing at home this coming weekend?
