Congratulations Stefan and congratulations Skype !!!
Some comments about this number:
- This means about 2.8 downloads for each registered username;
- The current mean download speed is about 500 downloads/minute;
- In the past there were short periods where the mean download speed was much higher than 1500 / minute;
- The last two years the speed of downloads was mainly linear (see the light blue straight line);
- A download doesn’t necessarily mean a "new user", as “old users” also download Skype on “new or other computers” and when Skype releases “new client versions”;
- And last but not least, Skype belongs to the top ten most downloaded applications ever.
