Jabber clients and OS usage stats (4)

March 31st, 2008 by lucas

After 2005, 2006 and 2007, I did it again. Here are my yearly stats about Jabber clients!

1244 users were online on the Apinc Jabber server when I ran the poll, and 1163 clients answered. Telepathy doesn’t seem to answer to jabber:iq:version, and it seems that a bug prevents Gajim from answering in some obscure cases (even when the “send info about OS” option is enabled).

Systems:

  • GNU/Linux 40%
  • Unknown 36% (Pidgin doesn’t report the OS)
  • Windows 17%
  • MacOS 5%
  • Others 0% (4 clients)

Clients:

  • Pidgin 27% (2007: gaim: 22%)
  • Gajim 20% (2007: 22%)
  • Psi 16% (2007: 24%)
  • Kopete 14% (2007: 11%)
  • libpurple (Adium) 6% (2007: 5%)
  • iChat 4% (2007: 9%)
  • Other clients with 2% or less: gajim, BitlBee, Miranda, Pandion, neos, pidgin (with ‘p’ instead of ‘P’), Trillian, Exodus, Coccinella, JabberLib, Tkabber, Gossip, Digsby Client, sim, Finch, JAJC, Bluejabb, Spark.
