CNR.com Beta Usage Numbers Released

Filed under
Linux

Since the launch of CNR.com beta last month, over 20,000 new CNR users have downloaded and installed the beta CNR Client. In addition, over 250,000 software programs, packages and libraries were downloaded and installed at an 89.9% successful installation rate.

"Early usage numbers clearly show CNR.com is solving a problem," said
Larry Kettler, President and CEO. "Finding, learning and one-click
installing of software applications saves desktop Linux users time, money
and eliminates a lot of frustration for the non-technical user."

As the open source ecosystem for desktop Linux software continues to
grow in terms of the number and diversity of projects, the ability for the
user to find software and learn about updates continues to be a challenge,
which is further compounded when each Linux distribution uses a specialized
package management system. CNR.com is designed to solve this problem by
aggregating the open source software repositories into a single web site
and by providing an open web services interface where any distribution can
utilize these services to easily find, install and update software.
Additionally, CNR.com provides an open source desktop client for those who
would like to use it as their package manager while retaining traditional
command line functionality.

In my previous post I showed how to install CuterCode and Qreator, two simple GUI applications for producing QR Codes. I have now found a couple of other GUI applications, Portable QR-Code Generator and QtQR, both of which offer more features than the aforementioned two, such as allowing you to specify the amount of error correction to be incorporated into the QR Code. And now to the two applications …
