It seems to be little downloaded or utilized. I suppose not too many Linux users are interested in it, or Bible study in general since other Linux Bible apps seem to be slowly developed as well.
Well, I once was told Linux users are liberals... but I'm not.
I don't like other Linux Bible software, only yours. I posted a link to your webpage in the Ubuntu Forum and it got a lot of views and some positive response. I hope my webpage link is helping to make your software known, as I think it is a blessing for Linux users. I always pray for Linux software, and I also pray for BibleAnalyzer.
For me, Linux is such a wonderful blessing. I think it will become popular as it advances just a little further. I hope so. We deserve better than Windows, and to do what I do on a Mac would cost me $3,000 with the software I need, on most of which I would mainly being paying for overkill. And then there are the horrible activation stories.
I think what is hurting Linux is, that most people want to begin with a dual boot, and the partition divider isn't good enough to accomplish how they want it done. With XP, if they just install the Windows Easeus partition divider, which is free and very easy to use, and then do a manual install in Linux, also easy, it just all goes straight in. However, 9.10 with the new file system and grub loader just had too many bugs, which slowed things as well.
But... I think the day is coming when Linux, especially Ubuntu, will just take off. The last kinks will finally be resolved. If that happens, those with a head start on software development could flourish. I hope you stick with it, as I see a great need for what you have coming. I suspect it is no accident you are in position with Linux on this software. That's why I always check back in this forum to see what is going on, but I was especially busy these last few weeks, or maybe, a month or so.
