Let's examine Eigen's website visitor statistics... http://stats.tuxfamily.org/awstats.pl?month=08&year=2008&output=allhosts&config=eigen.tuxfamily.org&framename=index it starts as follows: HOST PAGES HITS BANDWIDTH LAST VISIT 88-149-250-74.dynamic.ngi.it 226 327 4.25 MB 06 Aug 2008 88-149-251-187.dynamic.ngi.it 167 167 144.52 KB 11 Aug 2008 ok, that's Gael. It goes on with: c...cpe.net.cable.rogers.com 159 529 6.60 MB 12 Aug 2008 ok, that's me. Then, in 4th and 5th position: zoc-int-brk27.zocalo.net 85 240 5.24 MB 12 Aug 2008 nat0.troll.no 65 221 1.62 MB 07 Aug 2008 Wow, 221 hits from Trolltech! And that's days before alpha6 and my blog entry. And further below: berlin-gw.trolltech.de 24 120 3.24 MB 12 Aug 2008 I'm rather excited about that, folks. I know that sounds childish, but having Trolls interested in Eigen is something I have been looking forward to since Eigen 0.9 times. The reason why I'm spending this energy into Eigen is that I believe that math is set to become much much more pervasive throughout computing, and the reason why it hasn't been so far is that there is no adequate offer of math software for non-scientific applications. So what would be really rewarding to me, would be to see Eigen used further down the stack. It's already good to find a home in the icing of the cake (desktop applications) but it feels even better in the middle of the cake. Having found our first users among KDE applications, perhaps the best possible next thing for us would be to find a use in KDE and Qt libraries. There are countless use cases, and we know we're the best library in existence. ei_assert(ego().isNotOverInflated()); Assertion ego().isNotOverInflated() FAILED in file 'rant' at line 43
