The Blender website is being visited by so many people that we can’t find time to process the website statistic files… with traffic peeks of 1.5 TB per month, these stats files just are too large to digest easily.

Over the period of july 2004 to june 2005 we did count the download stats though, and with no full stats available of the American and Australian mirrors we already counted:

over 1.8 Million Blender downloads the past year!

Only in the first week of the release of Blender 2.37 we counted over a quarter million already. :)

You can view the sheet with stats here. It also contains information about the amount of Windows, OSX and Linux versions loaded from our site.
