AfterDawn: Tech news

Over 50 million software downloads

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 12 Dec 2005 10:16 User comments (25)

Over 50 million software downloads Last night, our little website reached yet another milestone during its 6+ year life cycle, when we served our 50,000,000th software download. Previous reported milestone was 25 million downloads back in September, 2004 -- it took about 14 months to double that figure that originally took over five years to achieve.
Considering the fact that our software selection is rather limited, only 600+ tools, the figure is quite nice. Again, thanks for everybody who've helped us to grow by visiting our site constantly, linking to our site from other websites, spreading the word to your friends, etc. And obviously, we'd like to thank all the great software developers making their freeware and shareware tools available to public.

When you do a service to the public that really helps you shouldn't be surprised by how many people. Will come to great service, and I am sure that it's all by word of mouth, or maybe it's by word of email, or maybe it like how I got here a simple Google search. Thank for that you done to help me.

Pbailey, I know what you mean. Whenever someone needs help burning, encoding something, I just re-direct them to afterdawn.com. So Afterdawn really needs to thank me for my lazy-ness. :)
