Default What server programs do MC servers use?

Tobias Mollstam has been busy working on the backroom side of Minecraft accounts (cf. http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum/...rnames-mc.html). He had a look some of the snooped data (cf. http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum/...ighlight=snoop) they have about the servers. Apparently (https://twitter.com/#!/mollstam/status/197112278536032257)
  • 80% - use Craftbukkit (like us)
  • 20% - use vanilla MC server
  • <1% - use Tekkit, Spout, Other server software and Canary servers
While he says that is only from a sample of the data, it is interesting how reliant servers are on Bukkit (and it further supports why they brought EvilSeph et al onboard).

See http://stats.minecraft.net/ for representations of the Minecraft server activity.

For those who are curious, the server data they have got is like:
Quote:
{ "_id" : { "$oid" : "4f9f180de4b0996300dd6efc" },
"memoryFree" : "17328474320",
"osVersion" : "6.1",
"memoryTotal" : "29941760000",
"memoryMax" : "29941760000",
"version" : "1.2.5",
"playersSeen" : "10504",
"playersCurrent" : "93",
"cpuCores" : "16",
"osArchitecture" : "amd64",
"serverBrand" : "craftbukkit",
"javaVersion" : "1.6.0_31",
"playersMax" : "250",
"osName" : "Windows Server 2008 R2",
"usesAuth" : "true" }
The client data is:
Quote:
{ "_id" : { "$oid" : "4f9f1812e4b0996300dd80cd" },
"openGlVendor" : "ATI Technologies Inc.",
"osVersion" : "5.1",
"openGlVersion" : "3.3.11554 Compatibility Profile Context",
"javaVersion" : "1.6.0_31",
"memoryMax" : "1037959168",
"memoryTotal" : "1037959168",
"osName" : "Windows XP",
"version" : "1.2.5" }
It is very interesting how little interest is from Asia and Africa, even South Africa.
