Usage Stats

Kexi usage statistics is an experiment started two years along with Kexi 2.4. The information helps to make certain decisions related to design and direction of the project. Today I'd like to show you first results.

On every startup of Kexi, background job sends anonymous information to project's kexi-project.org server. User's privacy is a top priority here; users need to opt-in by enabling Share usage info option at Kexi startup. For detailed idea and plans behind the effort, click the "?" mark in the startup window, here's a copy of the text. Naturally, the raw data is never presented online.

We're having a great meeting here in Munich, last night we collected a range of topics to chat about and today we've been moving post-it notes about as we discuss topics and fix problems. I'm enjoying it a lot.

Barcelona: KDE Frameworks Dragons and KDE Allotment

It's little advertised but KDE has an office in Barcelona. With Scotland getting cold, dark and wet I set off in search of sun and colleagues to have a change of scene and improve my health after a surgeon poked needles into my eye.

Night at the Museum with Linuxcon

Linuxcon ended in spectacular style with a party at the National Museum of Scotland, shown here with the interesting addition of a full marching band. Dolly the sheep was supposed to be on display but ran off at the sound of the bagpipes.

Linus Comes to Edinburgh

Linus is visiting Edinburgh today for a Q&A session at LinuxCon.

Asked where he'd like to see Linux in 5 years time he said he started Linux because he wanted to use it on his desktop but he's been disappointed how that hasn't taken off. He wishes desktop communities would stop arguing amongst competing technologies and would work together. How true. (And I continue to feel smug about being part of a community which hasn't started a new project to replace any desktop or desktop technology).
