Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Everyone loves open source software. After all… its free!
Many times I've heard the question, "what is the most popular open
source application of all time?" I decided to find out.
"So, I used metrics gathered from SourceForge.net to compile
this list. I think the results show some interesting things
computer users the world over. Here they are along with the total
number of downloads for each one. Enjoy.
"1. eMule – 520,970,337 downloads: The most popular open
source download of all time is a peer-to-peer file sharing client.
What does this tell you?
"2. Vuze (formerly Azureus) – 489,705,154 downloads: The
second most popular open source download of all time is a
Java-based BitTorrent client. Wow!"
