Google Trends – CentOS

centosCentOS 5.4 will be hitting our local CentOS mirrors and YUM repositories shortly, so in anticipation for the release lets take a look at the history and trends of CentOS 5 releases.

The Google Trend graph below shows a nice steady upwards trend on the generic CentOS search phrase which is a good indication of a growing and stable Linux distribution.

The below Google Trend graph compares the different versions of CentOS 5. What’s great to see is that there is a steady overall growth in the CentOS camp and with every new release, with the previous version tailing off, the newer CentOS version takes the lead and continues the steady upwards trend.
