One of the software companies has recently conducted a research, using a couple of its tools – AppRemover and Security Score. Both of the instruments had one basic purpose – that of increasing security. The matter is that tools are designed to keep logs of anonymous telemetry data, which are then analyzed and filed as a report.
So, the analysis was based on information collected from 45.000 customers, but the company claimed that the results might “differ from what exists in the real world”. There is a reason for saying this – not all of the users are connoisseurs of the technology world.
As it was said above, the two applications were meant to increase the security of the personal computer. As you might guess, AppRemover is quite self-explanatory – the tool removes unwanted or obsolete applications. In the meanwhile, Security Score offers a relevant security report depending on a thorough system scan. The company’s periodical report revealed that the BitTorrent client showed on 5,4% of the surveyed systems, and if you add uTorrent to the mix, you will get a 59% going to the largest P2P company. Apart from BitTorrent Inc., other file-sharing applications only managed to go as high as 6%.
The collected data also showed that about 34% of the examined PCs presented with the file-sharing fever. However, a solid argument could go as far as suggesting that not all installed programs are necessarily used, and the latest report comes to confirm this – it turned out that only 10% of the surveyed systems were noticed with P2P activity.
As for instant messaging, the segment is ruled by Microsoft, as Skype accounts for 38% and Windows Live – around 32%. The largest rival of the giant, Yahoo, had only 9%. While going head to head, file-sharing versus instant messaging, there are more users with IM software on their devices (over 45%) than peer-to-peer-based programs.
Finally, file-syncing services are doing quite well, with Dropbox accounting for 47.9% of the market. Google Drive only took 1.65%, Apple’s iCloud – 10.5%, and SkyDrive – 9.3%. Taking these figures into consideration, it looks like the entertainment industry is wrong again, because not everybody is out there to get them jumping from one feet to the other over piracy concerns.
