Readership demographics

I’ve been using awstats to collect statistics on visitors to my blog since July 2009. I’m a sucker for pretty graphs, so I’ve made a few 🙂

Operating systems

First and foremost, which operating systems are visitors running?

Good to see a disproportionately large number of Linux users! It’s probably a self-selecting audience to a certain extent though, as many of the posts on this blog are Linux guides or musings.

Linux distributions

So what distributions are the visitors running?

Overwhelmingly Fedora, it would seem. Again, perhaps no surprise as most of the articles here are about Fedora or CentOS.

Windows versions

Should I be worried that some of my visitors are still running Windows 98, Me and NT? Should I be concerned that there are also many hits from Windows 2003 and 2008, the server editions?

Browsers

And, of course, a chart of the browsers.

Unsurprisingly, Firefox blows everything else out of the water. “Others” included Netscape, Konqueror and FeedDemon.

Interestingly, the proportion of Mac users is far greater than the proportion or Safari users – which implies that Mac users are probably running Firefox instead.
