Reactos is spreading!!

Post by vicmarcal »

Well..

This is a really off topic(I hope also curious) post :D

Yesterday I was so bored and i searched in how many pages my name appears in Google. This is a way to know how our personal information is spreading through the Net. That give me a odd idea: How is our Reactos spreading through the net?Forward or backwards?

So i introduce in google the following:

Reactos 0.3.1: This search gave me 9560 Google entries
Reactos 0.3.2: This search gave me 1630 Google entries (This version has been never released,was skipped because major bugs appeared)
Reactos 0.3.3: This search gave me 10600 Google entries
Reactos 0.3.4: This search gave me 10400 Google entries
Reactos 0.3.5: This search gave me 12200 Google entries
Reactos 0.3.6: This search gave me 31400 Google entries (a big jump)
Reactos 0.3.7*:This search gave me 86800 Google entries ¡¡¡(again duplicating)


So it seems little by little we are moving forward
Our next step? Reaching Reactos 0.3.8 with more than 31400 0.3.7-version google entries... DONE
Arrived:12-November
next Step: Reaching 0.3.8 with more than 100.000 0.3.7-version google entries... DONE
Arrived:14-November
Ok...so next one Reaching Reactos 0.3.8 with more than 200.000 0.3.7-version google entries...?

So maybe we can use Social Network as Digg it! to spread it..In each country exists a web that works-like digg it¡(in Spain we have meneame.net and enchilame.net)...send them the notice about "0.3.7 has been released"...and cross the fingers ;)

This will help Developers join us... ;)

PS:
Just curious,search in Google for:
Linux : entries 413.000.000
Reactos: entries 792.000
Windows: 1.130.000.000
sex: 652.000.000 (upsss)(more Windows users than Sex users?It´s weird) ;)

That's because you don't get free sex every time you buy a new PC.

Trust me, I speak from experience... and now you know why I am banned from entering a PC World store ever again.

Well just looking numbers (first two months release):

0.3.5 (released day:30 june 2008 ) June: 2,193 downloads July: 62,679 downloads
0.3.6 (released day:7 august 2008) August: 54,975 downloads September:60,537 downloads
0.3.7 (release day:4 November 2008) November: 30297 downloads (updating)

So let´s calculate:

0.3.5 has downloaded in its first real month(30 june-30 july)
more or less 64000 downloads.(Which gives a 2133 downloads per day)
0.3.6 has downloaded in its first real month (7 august-7september)
more or less 70000 downloads.(54,975+15000)(givees a 2333 downloads per day)
0.3.7 has downloaded in its first real month (4 November-4December)
more than 47539(updating) downloads (gives actually 6000 downloads per day)

(of course 7500 is a false number,since the number of downloads arent constant in a short time)(but it promises a nice number)

So in global terms the line is growing ;)

Some people have ReactOS in their signatures (like me) this will up search count heavily if you've posted a lot and have your signature enabled. For example, I've made over 3000 posts on Freewebspace.net, most of them with my signature on (not all) and since vBull has a retroactive update to signatures....

I have ReactOS on my signature at ubuntuforums.org as well, but there, I've made less posts (About 140 or so. Though, Ubuntuforums don't count postcount in the Community Cafe.)

Though, apparently, Google doesn't like to archive all of freewebspace.net or other forums I visit. So it's really a toss up.

700-730 or so results for ReactOS iyeru

It doesn't matter that much which google you'll use. The difference is between searching for Reactos 0.3.7 and "Reactos 0.3.7" (including the quotes). :)

A Google Bug:

"reactos 0.3.7" gives me 700.000
reactos 0.3.7 gives me 128.000

The first search (with "") is more restrictive than the second one. So...why gives me more results than the second one??

THE AWFUL TRUTH ABOUT GOOGLE

It seems that different Google sites can give quite different results. Page language also has significance.

http://www.google.co.uk/ :
140,000 for "reactos 0.3.7"
137,000 for reactos 0.3.7

http://www.google.com/webhp?hl=en :
139,000 for "reactos 0.3.7"
138,000 for reactos 0.3.7

http://www.google.de/ :
140.000 for "reactos 0.3.7"
138.000 for reactos 0.3.7

http://www.google.de/webhp?hl=en :
597,000 for "reactos 0.3.7"
137,000 for reactos 0.3.7

http://www.google.es/ :
138.000 for "reactos 0.3.7"
138.000 for reactos 0.3.7

http://www.google.co.th/ :
605,000 for "reactos 0.3.7"
140,000 for reactos 0.3.7

http://www.google.co.th/webhp?hl=en :
140,000 for "reactos 0.3.7"
615,000 for reactos 0.3.7

http://www.google.ru/ :
142 000 for "reactos 0.3.7"
138 000 for reactos 0.3.7

Look also at Advanced Search page, reactos 0.3.7 is interpreted there as:
all these words: reactos
this exact wording or phrase: 0.3 7

WOW¡¡Why is this happening?
Doesnt have any sense.
It´s normal that different googles(as google.es or google.de) shows different number of entries (since the entries are indexed using also the Language param:giving more relevance to the own Language entries makes some entries appear in one google server and not appearing in the others). But why that jump from 140.000 to 597.000 using the same server??

And again the same doubt:
Why Google finds more entries in "reactos 0.3.7" (which is: search entries with both words and they must be concatenated) that in reactos 0.3.7(which is: search entries with both words,concatenated or not.)?
ODD :(
