Is Flash Really On 99% of Net Devices?

YAGNI Re:Learn statistics (383 comments)

Perhaps you dropped out of college? I did not read the article, but the sample of 4600 used in typical consumer surveys is blatantly inadequate to represent a population of 956 million, let alone a population of 6.76 billion. In, say, Eurobarometers, a sample of about 4600 is used for each country alone.

DragonFly BSD 2.2 Released

YAGNI Re:First (44 comments)

Could this be taken as a proof that the Slashdot readership does not represent the demography of computer users? Indeed, news for nerds.

It is always luscious to observe that with the 1 % market share, the users of a particular operating system feel strong enough to downplay other systems.

It is even more groovy to observe that the 1 % market share actually turns out to be 99 % market share. Only in Slashdot.

This all leads to a question: how much of that 1 % market share is represented by the awkward socio-economic group called "fanboys"?
