  • How many users do we really have?

    Ok, so looking at the downloads section of the google project, CarFrontEnd 1.0a7 has been downloaded 77 times as of right now.

    I have to wonder, do we really have that many users or are one of you continually downloading it to make me feel better?

    To put it in perspective, here are the counts starting with 1.0a2 (first release with the installer):
    2: 64 over 7 days
    3: 7 in less than a day (That was the really horrible release)
    4: 20 in 3 days
    5: 45 in 15 days
    6: 34 in 17 days
    7: 77 in 26 days (and counting)

    So what's the scoop? Anyone want to take a guess at how many users we really have (if there are 77 of us, you are a quiet bunch )? Or fess up to artificially inflating the count?

    I didn't even download every release, so... maybe there *are* that many users?

      I recently downloaded it. I like it, except it is a little limited in the looks department! Also, it could use some plug-ins, but none of the other FE's do all the stuff I want either.

      OTOH, it is dead simple to use and I really like that.

        Please post your ideas and thoughts (in relevant threads). Obviously I won't get to anything in the near term, but I can't make it more appealing without feedback

            I just downloaded it a few minutes ago. Since I just finished my Mac Mini 500 GB 3.5" HD install I will install it once I hook everything back up again and let you know any idea that I have.

            I'm not too strong on programming anymore. I'm more of a hardware person, so I don't think I'll be too much help with actually programming it.

                      It's not car ready yet but I'm using it to demonstrate the concept of a simple, purpose specific GUI being kept uncluttered by unnecessary controls and options.
                      Once it's a bit more functional and A&A actually works I'll have to decide if one of my G4 Cubes is going in the car or if I'm going to need something that'll support Leo.

                        nliwilson, you don't happen do be the one who reported the bug in A&A? Because I can't reproduce the bug and I haven't got around to contact the one who reported it (I suppose I can use his username with @gmail.com...)

                        Still, I will try to find and fix it as soon as I have some free time on my hands.

                          No I haven't submitted a bug report, sorry. I'm still using Tiger at the moment so to be honest I just assumed it was a compatibility issue, basically after installing CFE and even after manually adding A&A I still get a blank panel (apart from the white scroll-bar background) where the A&A list should be.
