50 million Apache OpenOffice downloads in a year

Filed under
Software

Just a few days after the one year anniversary of the release of the first version of OpenOffice from the Apache Foundation (Apache OpenOffice 3.4) on 8 May 2012, the project can now boast 50 million downloads of the open source office suite. More than 80% of these downloads have come from Windows users, with the rest of the downloads spread between Mac OS X and Linux. Over time, the percentage of Windows users has slightly increased at the expense of Mac OS X, with Linux usage hovering steady under 5%.

Linux distributions do not account for a large percentage of Apache OpenOffice downloads because almost all major distributions currently ship with the LibreOffice fork. The distributed nature of LibreOffice's downloads between different distributions makes it hard, if not impossible, to compare its download numbers.
