Half a million views, and stats

This blog finally reached the 500,000 views milestone, which might not be interesting to many people, but perhaps the stats will, so here they are :)

From the looks of it, most of the readers come from RSS feeds, not really other blogs or planets. The busiest day I wrote the blog post My disagreement with Elop on MeeGo which was even featured in Finish online newspapers, so clearly the was a huge bump, but not enough to be the #1 post. Also, a lot of people are interested in GNOME 3 suckage, unfortunately the only post I have about GNOME 3 is rather small (and even then it got criticism from GNOMErs), so I shouldn’t pull my punches and write a full-blown criticism (there’s plenty of material). I’m already working on an analysis of the GNOME user survey results, which is already very interesting on its own, but will take time.

So, here they are. Enjoy :)
