And what "most famous search engines" are you referring
2008/3/26, Wei Chen <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
The search volume for Debian has been continuously decreasing in the
recent years, as shown in the search trend statistics of one of the most
famous search engines. This indicates that Debian is losing its users,
e.g. about 50% in the last 3 years.
Link to this statistics?
I doubt that searches for "Debian" in any context have
anything to do with the number of people using it. I
have three Debian systems, soon to be four, and I
haven't done a search for debian in years! I know where
to find what I want; debian.org, sourceforge.net and
email@example.com, to start with.
I would guess the most likely person to do a search for
any alternative operating system would be a Windows
user who is sick and tired of it and is looking for
something to replace it!
