    Post The prototypical linux user

    I'd like to share this with you:

    So I made a couple of linux videos and uploaded them to youtube.

    Youtube analytics is a cool way to find out who has been viewing your videos so let's pick 2 videos that each had ~2.000 views:

    demographics:

    Gender

    Male100.0%
    Female0.0%

    Male, 25-34 years 65%
    Male, 35-44 years 20%
    Male, 18-24 years 15%



    so we have a male 28 year old and now we find out where he is from:

    Code:
    Geography
    Views	
    Estimated minutes watched
    1.
    United States	
    518
    727
    2.
    Italy	
    348
    440
    3.
    Germany	
    236
    356
    4.
    France	
    129
    320
    5.
    Brazil	
    120
    236
    6.
    Poland	
    118
    219
    7.
    United Kingdom	
    103
    185
    8.
    Russia	
    96
    194
    9.
    Spain	
    77
    188
    10.
    Canada	
    69
    125

    and that really surprised me:

    I was expecting the audience for linux to be mostly emerging markets and developing nations, eastern europe/asia/latin america.

    it turns out that 'he' is an american 28 year old.

    Across the board from all videos united states always comes up first followed by some european union country (Italy seems to have a very active linux community).


    There are simply no hits from China (???) and from African nations they don't ammount to more than a dozen.


    this baffles me

    why is open source not popular in emerging nations????
