Now that I’m caught up on stats after having published them for June and July, and now that it’s September, it’s time to publish stats for August.

Overall usage is up a surprising 15% over July, and 25% since May. Vista usage is still growing strongly, and is up another 17% over July and 47% since May! Even the 64-bit slice of the pie saw good growth, showing a 10% increase. Sadly, 64-bit is still only 1.25% of the user base.

For the next release of Paint.NET, I am planning on adding some extra telemetry. Namely, I want to be able to count the total number of installations, first-time installations versus upgrade installations, and first-time runs of the application. This will let me gather some more useful information about the actual size of the Paint.NET installed base. The reporting will be completely anonymous, but of course be something you may opt out of.
