Interesting to see, that Denmark is above the USA in the statistics. I think the developers in the US are not really passionate about .NET, since Micro$oft has outsorced the .Net jobs to India.

the country that notices only its power and considering that it’s above all other soon became powerless.

The length of those bars is as a percentage of the searches from that country. I’m sure the USA googles for Microsoft .NET quite a bit, but we use Google to look up so many other things that it dilutes the length of our bar.

Hi Umbergryphon,

ok, you are right! According to the Google Trends FAQ, the bar is relative to all searches from the country. That means that people from Denmark have fewer other interests than people from the USA ;)

You should also post comparison statistics – say, all searches for Java and all searches for Open Source across countries. That would be a really interesting comparison.

Actually, I just did a trend search for ‘Java’, ‘open source’, and ‘opensource’, and the US isn’t even in the top 10 for those.
