Rusty's Zietgeist 2005

Zeitgeist is something Google does every year. It is a German word that means roughly “spirit of the season”. Google digs deep into its search history, to provide us with very interesting stats about the general trends in the world.

So today was digging into RustyShack’s stats page and decided why not have a Rusty’s Zietgeist! Yeah, I know Google gets a million hits everyday and mine struggles to reach even 150. But I had nothing better to do today. Consider this as an alternate view from the not so lucky less-hits-recieved side of the web. :D

Two quick interpretations? Bill’s OS still rules the PC world and Firefox still lags behind IE. Point 1, hmm, Neutral. Point 2, so sad :(
