On July 4th, I posted an Eclipse Europa Review on my blog. Since then I have had approximately 1000 hits referred to my blog for this review from places like DZone and Planet Eclipse.
I know this as I have a nifty site meter on my blog which tracks data like referring URL and location.
One of the things I have found most interesting is the country distribution of people coming to look at the review.
While I know the data set is small, I find many things interesting from the general indication:
Why is it that China does not show up?
From the information that I have, China is the largest single download "consumer" of Eclipse.
Is it a language issue?
Is this something we could look into falling under the scope of the Eclipse translation project, Babel?
Same for Korea.
Or is it simply a limitation of the site meter?
I would have expected more hits from India based on the download distribution.
The large distribution of countries that are using Eclipse: who knew about Algeria and Malta?
All in all it truly is amazing at the global spread of Eclipse!
