China is now #1 in Eclipse downloads

Well it happened at lot faster, it now seems China has become the number one country in terms of Eclipse SDK downloads.

One thing this points to is the importance of a conference like OS Summit Asia. There is a large growing Eclipse community in China, so this conference should be well received.

btw, if you are a project committer what better reason to submit a proposal for a session. A great opportunity to connect with your user community.
