The Corpus Callosum

of open-source software, I recall posting a while back when
the percentage of visits to Corpus Callosum, by users of Internet
Explorer, dropped below 50%.


Now, it is 24%.  Roughly parallels President Bush’s approval
rating.  I wonder what those two stats would look like on a
graph over time.

    I wonder if there’s a correlation between use of open source and interest in science.

    My money says Corkscrew is onto something.

    Interesting. I just looked at the stats for my own blog and see the IE usage has been dropping steadily throughout this year. In January it was 31%. This month it is running just 23%. Over the last week, it is only 11%.

    I sort of wonder if people installed IE7, decided they did not like it, found out it wa a pain in the neck to revert to IE6, so decided to try Firefox. As long as you have to go through the trouble to learn a new interface, you may as well switch to the better product.
