Ubuntu 的人气在下降?纯属扯淡!

最近就像多米诺骨牌一样,网络上关于Ubuntu的市场份额在下降、Ubuntu被它的近亲Linux Mint所超越的文章铺天盖地。散发此虚假消息包括这些国外著名科技博客The Register, ZDNet, PCWorld。这些文章大多都把责任归咎于Unity,而数据来源皆来自distrowatch.com

更滑稽的是,竟有人声称Ubuntu 自Mark Shuttleworth 在2004 年创立Ubuntu以来,Ubuntu的市场份额一直在下降,它给出的图表如下:

它的主要(唯一)数据来源来自于distrowatch.com。

Ubuntu 的人气在下降?你在扯蛋吧。Linux News 将从以下几点分析,观点来自于omgubuntu:

distrowatch.com并不是准确的Linux 发行版流行度衡量方法

当一个发行版变为一个主流的Linux发行版,如ubuntu,Ubuntu DistroWatch主页的访问量并不会按ubuntu的实际用户数据比例增长。因为一般人并不会访问DistroWatch,还有可能他们都还没有听说过DistroWatch。通过上面滑稽的图表数据,你应该赞成当一个发行版是主流的Linux发行,DistroWatch的统计数据将没有意义。

其他衡量Linux 发行版流行度的方法

那么既然DistroWatch的方法不准确,那么如何知道相对的Linux 发行版流行度呢?事实上,它是相当困难的。或许最好的方法是看一下Facebook上各发行版主页。Facebook上Ubuntu已经超过500000粉丝,而Linux Mint只有14000。同样的方法,你可以看下Google+和Twitter发行版主页。

另外Google Trends也显示Ubuntu 明显领先

另外DistroWatch也公布了distrowatch.com首页的访问情况,Ubuntu来明显领先。

还有一种方法就是查看一下wikimedia的统计数据,Ubuntu的数据也是遥遥领先。
