Ranking de las distribuciones de Linux, y el declive de las tradicionales distros
Una reciente encuesta de Hacker News preguntar acerca de las distribuciones Linux de la elección me hizo pensar, ¿qué podemos aprender de un panorama más amplio del paisaje distro que una sola encuesta HN? Fui a buscar la vuelta y busqué un par de otras fuentes de información - Premios Elección del Lector anual de Linux Journal, y los datos de Google Trends.
Lo que hace que estas tres opciones particulares interesante es que abarcan una amplia franja de los tipos de usuarios, desde el hacker (Hacker News) para el entusiasta (Linux Journal) que el "promedio" Linux usuario (Google). Eso significa que podemos aprender de las tendencias a través de estos tres tipos de usuarios - considerando que las comunidades pueden ser más predictivo o más vs técnico que representan una mayor adopción en la actualidad.
Los resultados se muestran a continuación, clasificados en orden de popularidad Hacker News para que podamos ver distros populares entre las audiencias altamente técnicos más fácilmente. Distros se muestran por orden de Hacker News filas. Hacker datos noticia viene de aquí , los datos de Linux Journal de aquí , y Google Trends es de datos de una búsqueda con sede en.
Podemos ver que en términos generales, las tendencias son consistentes a través de audiencias. Existen diferencias menores, así como un par de valores atípicos claros que son mucho más populares entre el público en general (Linux Mint y CentOS). No es ninguna sorpresa para mí que Debian y Ubuntu basado distros están en la parte superior, a pesar de la popularidad de arco más allá de la comunidad de entusiastas me sorprendió. Vamos a bucear en los datos, una distro a la vez:
• Ubuntu:. El claro ganador entre todas las comunidades, con casi…...

...Of the 69 persons, 60 (86.95%), indicated they currently owned an Android or iPhone. It was noted that 27 (39.13%) responders have owned their phone between one and six months. The survey also revealed that 28 (40.58%) people paid between $150 and $299 for their phones. New phones when bought on a new or renewed contract cost between $199 and $299. Based on these two figures, it is being assumed that most people have fairly new phones. The findings showed that aside from people switching between Androids and iPhones, for 30 (43.48%) people, their current phone was not their first smartphone. Most (34.78%) of those responders indicated they owned BlackBerrys before switching over to an Android or iPhone. Of the 60 people who owned Androids or iPhones, 57 (95%) claimed that they were happy with their current phones. Of the three that were unhappy, two owned Androids and one owned an iPhone. There are usually a core group of factors that people look for when purchasing a phone. We have polled people on a group of twelve aspects; Screen Size, Phone Size, Apps, Battery Life, Customizability, Accessories, Ease of Use, Music Listening, Movie Watching, Stability, System Updates, and Phone Support. We asked responders to decide between either the iPhone or Android as to which is better in each aspect. By giving each category a weight we determined which phone did better by category and overall. Android and iPhone were only a few percentage points away from each......

Iphone vs. Android

...At the end of the 2011 fiscal year, Android phones crept just above iPhones in overall sales. Apple had been at the top of the list and unparalleled since the dawn of the iPhone. While there seems to be an ongoing debate over which is better, the iPhone and Android smartphones have many similarities and differences to consider. Apple's iPhone OS and Google's Android OS have many components in common; both are Linux-based operating systems for smartphones, but there are some dramatic differences that make these platforms almost very different. The iPhone's OS is completely closed. This means that it is being developed by Apple and used exclusively for Apple products. The only smartphones that will ever run the iPhone are manufactured by only this one company. Android, on the other hand, is open. This means that it is being developed primarily by Google, and with the help of a group of companies. Many of the members of this group, the Open Handset Alliance (OHA), will release smartphones based on the Android operating system. Some of these companies include HTC, Samsung, and Motorola. There are advantages and disadvantages to both operating systems, and the competition between the two platforms is going to shape the smartphone market for years to come. Both the iPhone and Android platforms offer many similar features that are appealing to the user. Both have a fairly long battery life, single and dual cameras that also take video, easy uploading to Facebook, Twitter,......

...from Sam Costello for about.com article iPhone vs Android: Which smartphone should you buy? http://ipod.about.com/od/iphonevscompetitors/tp/Iphone-Or-Android-which-to-buy.htm Hardware is the first place that the differences between the iPhone and Android become clear. Apple is the only company that makes iPhones, giving it extremely tight control over how the software and hardware work together. On the other hand, Google offers its Android software to many phone makers (Samsung, HTC, LG, and Motorola, among others, offer Android phones). As a result, Android phones vary quite a bit in size, weight, features, user experience, and quality. Apple offers users a single choice: what model of iPhone do you want (5, 4S or 4), not what company’s phone and then what model. Of course, some people may prefer the greater choice Android offers. Others, though, will appreciate the simplicity and quality offered by the iPhone. Apple's support for older phones is generally better than Android's. Take for instance, iOS 6, its latest OS. It includes full support for the iPhone 4, a more than two-year-old phone as of this writing. Because of that, the latest version of the iOS, 6.1.2, became the most-used version just a week after its release. On the other hand, Android 4.0, codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich, is running on just 2.9% of Android devices 6 months after its release. This is partly because the makers of the phones control when the OS is released for their phones and, as......

Most of those third party builders did not have the slightest idea on how to make a successful application. An example of a third party program downloaded and tested was an MP3 music downloader. It downloaded a few songs and they stayed on the phone for a couple of days. Then an update came along with it and they would wipe all music out that had been downloaded.

ANDROID ADVANTAGES OF GOOGLE’S ANDROID ADVANTAGES OF GOOGLE’S ANDROID Google's mission statement is “to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.” In producing its Android operating system, Google has continued to deliver on this promise, as it has become the world’s leader in smartphone sales. The following section examines the major advantages of the Android operating system to Google’s hardware, and the reasons it has quickly overtaken its competitors to become the leading smartphone seller in the world. Also, the following section will examine how Google is using and developing new software that, paired with its smartphone, will continue to strengthen its hold in smartphone market supremacy. Hardware         In late 2008, Google introduced the first Android operating phone into the smartphone market. Within two years, Google’s Android operating system (AOS) became the world’s leader in overall smartphone sales. Today, Google owns 50 percent of the market share for total smartphone sales in the world. Google’s closest competitor, Apple, who released their smartphone in mid-2007, owns only 30 percent of the smartphone market share (Associated Press, 2012, para. 1). With Google’s success in the smartphone market, its achievements have now led it to use its Android operating system to start seeking competition with Apple in other similar products, such as tablets.

...iOS vs android Before we go on with the comparison of android and iOS, we must know what these two words, that have so much importance in today's world, really are. Android and iOS are two different mobile operating system, the former is from Google Inc. and the latter is developed by Apple Inc. iOS was first released in 2007 and Android in 2008. Both thee operating systems have many differences the basic one being that these are programmed in different languages. Android is programmed in C, C++ and Java, whereas, iOS is programmed in C, C++, Objective-C. Available languages in an Android are 32, and in iOS the number is a little higher i.e. 34. Both of theses two have their own browsers, internet messaging, video chat, maps, voice commands facility, however , where Android seems to be running on different smart phones and is indeed the most popular mobile operating system today, iOS runs only on Apple products. FaceTime, Safari browser, and other apps work only on the Apple products that has been a reason why Android is more popular than iOS. Moreover, using bluetooth you can only share files with Apple products if you're an iPhone user. Over a period of around 5 years, android and iOS operating systems have become more advanced, competing each other and continuously improving themselves with releases of newer versions of both mobile operating systems in areas they were lacking. Therefore, its hard to distinguish which mobile software offers more or which one is...

...October 25, 2014 Android or iOS, Which Will You Pick? You check your phone bill online and notice you are eligible for an upgrade. Good timing too, the Nokia 3310 that you have been using since 2000 was on its last leg. So you go and look at the new phones that are out and there are so many to choose from. But you want the best of the best, brand new phone, so you do some research. What you find is that Android and Apple are the big names in the game. You end up picking an Android phone, I will tell you why. Apple has been building computers since 1976, but they decided to try their hand at smartphones in 2007, releasing the iPhone. Microsoft, Palm, and Blackberry already had smartphones on the market by then, but the iPhone was the first to offer a touch screen. Apple focused on speed and consistency between apps. There was a lot lacking in the iPhone. It did not support 3G, you couldn’t copy and paste, it did not support third party apps, it had minimal buttons, and it didn’t have a customizable home screen. (IOS: A Visual History) However, no one seemed to care, Apple sold 3.7 million by 2008. Over 500 million iPhones have been sold worldwide, as of June 2014. (How Many IPhones Have Been Sold Worldwide) Everything Apple does is proprietary, so only Apple products will work with Apple products. Android started as a company in 2003 and was acquired by Google in 2005. Google released the first Android emulator in 2007. They kept working on the emulator, getting close......

...Android versus iPhone Karla Washington ENG/130 February 9th, 2015 Maureen Chisholm The Choice is yours Since 2007, I have been an iPhone user. I stood in line for hours waiting for the Apple store to open so that I could purchase their newest creation. I happily handed over $599 for the opportunity to be the owner of the first iPhone and the latest gadget out there. Yes, I was fondly known as “the gadget girl.” If there was a new gadget, I had to have it, at any cost. The very first iPhone was released on June 29, 2007 in the United States where thousands of people (including myself) were reported to have waited outside Apple and AT&T retail stores days before the device's launch; with many stores reporting stock shortages within an hour. To avoid repeating the problems of the PlayStation 3 launch, which caused burglaries and even a shooting, off-duty police officers were hired to guard stores overnight. (Hart & Sabrina, 2007) For years, Apple has cornered the cell phone market with their creation of the iPhone, but now people are turning to the next best thing, the Android. It has the same features as the iPhone for less of the cost and more freedom of choice for the user. So what will it be? The iPhone fad, with a new iPhone every other year or the Android, with numerous types, price points and choices with the ability to have extra money in your pocket? Android and Google are a better choice I was an iPhone user up until the iPhone 5. In 2013, I...

...John Kelley Admin400 – R10 Apple vs. Android When it comes to analyzing the Apple iPhone, it is important to understand their main strategies that they use to try and give themselves a competitive advantage. Judging by the products that Apple has put out in their iPhone line, it certainly appears that they have achieved a competitive advantage over other companies, most notably ones in the Android market. The Apple iPhone has always been known for its sleek and highly aesthetic design, along with most other Apple products. This has become a staple of their company, and a strategy that has proved to be successful. The iPhone is physically appealing to most customers, and in the Wired Android article they mention that the visual aspect of the phone is a huge factor in what type of phones consumers will buy. It mentions that people don’t want to buy ugly phones that are hard to use. This is something that the iPhone has taken advantage of to give themselves an edge, by creating a phone that is pleasing to the eye and relatively simple to use. As far as the Android phones, they take a different approach to try and appeal to their customers. They want to express that their technology is “smarter” and has more capabilities than that of Apple’s iPhone. This is a concept that may appeal to some people, but also may steer people away from their product if they are looking for a phone that is easier to use. Although Android phones are still quality products, it......

...Dave Cavaliere Mr. Adcock English 111 10 November 2015 iOS vs Android This is to inform the advantages of having an iOS device versus an Android Device. I am going to talk about Apple’s clean software interface versus Android’s, I am also going to explain the processes involved in security updates, and software updates all together. All these combined will construct a pattern of how 90% of all Apple users stay up to date with the most current software while Android has a consistent 35% that are up to date. Apple devices are known to have a cleaner software to hardware integration because Apple specifically designs and fabricates software and hardware for each other while Android designs software only. iOS has always been known for its outstanding smooth interface and most of this is specifically due to Apple writing its own software for its own manufactured hardware whereas Android, while its own software is well known and popular has always been known for its glitches and jumpy interface. This is because Android doesn’t manufacture its own devices, they have companies such as Motorola, Samsung, and Nokia which is great, Microsoft has been doing this for years but the problem is all the devices have their own specification to run on such as different hardware specifications, screen sizes, and based on the carrier i.e. Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and Sprint they have their own software to add and has to be modified to fit their devices. Apple has it written in their...
