    Ubuntu forum and Windows 8 forum.

    I just noticed this morning that Ubuntu forum had 189 members and 10854 current users online, where Windows 8 forum had 100 members and 3822 guests currently online. It looks like Ubuntu has more supporters (or maybe we have more users?). Just an observation.

    I think most Windows users aren't aware of the forum.

    I never looked at forums until I switched to Linux.

    Good point. I guess I never did either.

    Sad, i remember when the forum had 10x more traffic and actives.. Not that Ubuntu isnt as great as it used to be, it still is. Just more folks use social networking sites these days it seems..

    I tried Social Networks but I find this forum much more useful. More help, and easier to fine answers.

    Maybe a few WIndows people end up here asking Windows questions (check the "Other OS" subforum) I don't imagine people asking Linux questions in WIn forums.

    But I go in the Win 8 forum and promote Linux and open source software.
