On December 27, the pages were updated again to sport a new "Display by software Category" feature designed to make it easier for you to find what you need.

  • 27795 were Windows software (92%), 2334 were Macintosh downloads (8% of total)
  • 9637 were Windows Antivirus (32% of all downloads, 34% of Windows downloads)
  • 554 were Mac antivirus (1.7% of all downloads and 24% of all Macintosh downloads)
  • 2820 were Windows Spybot downloads (9%), 1000 were Windows XP Service Pack (3%). Add that to the Antivirus downloads and we might state that 45% of all downloads were some kind of Windows fixes  (13457downloads)
