Jabber clients and OS usage stats (2)

March 22nd, 2006 by lucas

I already did this last september. This time, 1145 online clients from the Apinc Jabber server replied to the poll. It was done around 4:30 PM, french local time. Here are the results.

Systems :

  • GNU/Linux : 38% (in september 2005: 34%)
  • Windows : 37% (34%)
  • Mac OS : 18% (23%)
  • Others (AmigaOS, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, SunOS) : 0% (1%)
  • Unknown (Gaim doesn’t always report the OS) : 5% (6%)

Clients :

  • Psi: 28% (28%)
  • Gaim: 25% (25%)
  • iChatAgent: 13% (18%)
  • Kopete: 7% (7%)
  • Gajim: 5% (3%)
  • Pandion: 4% (2%)
  • libgaim: 4% (3%)
  • Miranda: 2% (1%)
  • neos: 2% (1%)
  • BitlBee: 1% (0%)
  • Exodus: 1% (1%)
  • Trillian: 1% (2%)
  • Unknown: 0% (none)
  • JBother: 0% (none)
  • JAJC: 0% (0%)

All clients with at least one reply are listed here.

I’ll let you do the analysis :-) I’m just quite happy with the fact that we know have much less Mac users (most of them were parasites only interested in the MSN gateway).

The scripts are available on request if you want to run them against your own server.
