History bandwagon

OK fine I’ll jump on…
[rusharri@rusharri-lnx-t61p ~]$ history|awk '{a[$2]++ } END{for(i in a){print a[i] " " i}}'|sort -rn|head
207 ls
168 cd
66 more
63 sudo
36 ssh
29 evolution
29 emacs
28 for
24 rpm
23 rm

Yes that evolution in there is from having to do a evolution --force-shutdown all the time because the exchange connector feels much hatred.
[rusharri@rusharri-lnx ~]$ history|awk '{a[$2]++ } END{for(i in a){print a[i] " " i}}'|sort -rn|head
216 ls
164 cd
120 ssh
66 sudo

40 man

Linux Foundation 2007 Desktop Survey Responses Mapped

Late last year the Linux Foundation‘s Desktop Working Group posted the results of their 2007 Linux Desktop/Client Survey. I finally got around to trying to take a little bit closer look at the data. I was pretty taken with the work Jef Spaleta has been doing producing maps for various Fedora Project statistics. I wanted to see if I could apply the same tools to the IPs from the responses to the desktop Linux survey. It was surprisingly easy given that Jef had already done all the heavy lifting.

Here they are broken down by survey language and finally all of the responses together.
