KDE e.V. Windows Store Statistics
Soon the year ends, let’s take a look at the current statistics of all applications in the Windows Store published with the KDE e.V. account.
Last 30 days statistics
Here are the number of acquisitions for the last 30 days (roughly equal to the number of installations, not mere downloads) for our applications:
KDE Connect - Enabling communication between all your devices - 6,368 acquisitions
Okular - More than a reader - 6,197 acquisitions
Kate - Advanced Text Editor - 3,435 acquisitions
Filelight - Disk Usage Visualizer - 836 acquisitions
Kile - A user-friendly TeX/LaTeX editor - 523 acquisitions
Elisa - Modern Music Player - 239 acquisitions
KStars - Astronomy Software - 199 acquisitions
LabPlot - Scientific plotting and data analysis - 143 acquisitions
A nice stream of new users for our software on the Windows platform.
One issue we have here is: Kate/Okular/… are still release 21.04. It would be cool if people could step up and help to update the releases there. Actually, on just needs to grab a version of the binary factory and test it and propose it as update, that would already help.
The overall acquisitions since the applications are in the store:
Okular - More than a reader - 137,378 acquisitions
Kate - Advanced Text Editor - 121,460 acquisitions
KDE Connect - Enabling communication between all your devices - 36,226 acquisitions
