My top 10 blog posts of 2008

Here the top 10 of blog entries visited in 2008 in my blog:

10 - pdftk frontend for KDE
9 - Poppler for windows
8 - KDE 4.1 adoption seems high
7 - KHTML rocks
6 - Performance of radeon free drivers
5 - KDE, plugins, GPL and closed source applications
4 - keyboard crazyness
3 - Morocco trip
2 - fglrx blocking Xorg on logout
1 - KUbuntu 8.04 released with rock solid 3.5.9 goodness...

One can extract several interesting things from this list:
- Last year i did not make interesting blogs, 5 out of 10 are from either 2006 or 2007
- People really want a pdftk frontend for KDE since my 2007 post of my no longer existant project is visited frecuently
- People want to use poppler in windows, strange that all those users almost never sent patches to the project, seems like windows culture is not so much about collaborating but about just using.
- My Morocco trip summary is liked by google, it's linked in the first page of results usually
- The two most read blog entries are about bugs in kubuntu ... maybe that's why Canonical never replied to me applying for jobs there :D

I didn't try it, but could be a usable pdftk gui?

I haven't tried it either, but as far as i can see, no, it doesn't have a gui :D It's "just" a menu entry in the file right click menu. With that i'm not saying it's a bad program, just very far with what i had in mind with my frontend.
