[News] Eclipse Programming Trends Look Spectacular for GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Poll: 90 per cent are satisfied with the Eclipse development environment

,----[ Quote ]
| The Eclipse Foundation has published the results of the global Eclipse 
| Community Survey 2009 in The Open Source Developer Report[icon:pdf]. The 
| Foundation held the survey from mid-April to mid-May in order to get 
| developer feedback on the tools and software that they use. The organisation 
| wanted to learn how the respondents used open source software and how they 
| interacted with the Eclipse community. Nearly 1,500 participants took part in 
| the Foundation poll, of which 27.8 per cent were from Germany, followed by 
| 15.7 per cent from the United States. Only 0.6 per cent of participants were 
| from the United Kingdom. Approximately 80 per cent of the respondents worked 
| for companies that are not members of an open source consortium.

| More tellingly, Linux is now the leading deployment platform at 43 percent 
| and Windows has dropped to 41 percent among Eclipse users surveyed. 


Eclipse survey results show growth in Linux, open source

| The Eclipse Foundation has published the findings of its latest user survey. 
| According to the results, the number of developers using Eclipse on Linux 
| workstations and deploying their applications on Linux servers has increased. 
| The results also show an increase in the number of respondents who say that 
| their companies are contributing to open source software.    



GNU/Linux Eclipses Windows – for Eclipse Users

,----[ Quote ]
| For me, the highlight is the following:
| Developers appear to be shifting away from Microsoft Windows to Linux and Mac
| OSX for their development operating system. 26.9% of respondents cite Linux
| was as primary desktop operating system, representing a 7 percentage point
| increase from 2007. Though Windows is still the dominant development OS at
| 64%, it has decreased 10 percentage points from 2007. The most popular Linux
| variant of choice among developers is Ubuntu, which accounts for over half of
| Linux respondents. Mac OSX has increase to 6.9% from 3.5% in 2007.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
