Early Survey Results - Most People use Joomla 1.5

Joomla Events are growing and Joomla 1.5 is Easier to Use

Last year over 3000 people filled out our first ever Annual Joomla User Survey. Over the last few weeks we have been running our 2nd Annual Joomla Survey and already over 1000 people have told us about how they use Joomla.

There is still time to fill out the survey and enter to win over $1,000 worth of prizes!

We released the results of our first survey last year and found some interesting things. We have been looking at some of the early data, and its been very interesting to be able to analyses trends now we have data over time.

Most people are using Joomla 1.5

Last year we didn't have this question, but this year we asked what versions of Joomla people were using:

Joomla 1.0.x 27%
Joomla 1.5 50%
Both 23%

Clearly the use of 1.5 is gaining significant ground, and perhaps is now at the point where most people are using it. You can find more about Should I use Joomla 1.0 or 1.5 at the Compass Design Blog.

More People are going to Joomla Events

There has been growth in the number of Joomla events around the world, both official Joomla! Days and unofficial ones such as the Joomla EXPO. This increase can be seen in the change from 2007 to 2008.

In 2007

yes 8%
no 92%

In 2008

yes 14%
no 86%

Joomla 1.5 is Getting Easier

We asked how difficult users found it to set up Joomla. It seems that users have found that easier with Joomla 1.5, though we will have to crunch more data to see if this is because of users greater experience with Joomla in general.

gave up 2% gave up 1%
hours 35% hours 39%
minutes 63% minutes 57%

There you have it, some initial results from our survey. We'll have more data crunching soon as well as the release of the complete results. Already taken the survey or want to discuss it? Jump into our forum discussion.
