    Well, stop right here, we have used up a lot of energy to explain why one is better than the other, this thread was not created for this purpose but solely to compare the search results during the last 90 days. As per the screenshot attached, SX os wins in the number of search using Google. If we analyse the graph at the end of the period, it's interesting to see that each drop of SX search is accompanied with an increase of Reinx search.

    Maybe SX OS is still kinda a buzzword?

    Maybe, since it was lunched first.

    I get the point and I understand why it would make sense, but I don't think comparing search is enough.

    Kinda like that.

    This is a mere search comparaison, it doesn't in any case reflect the number of users

    The reason why we have so many search queries for ReiNX is, because people were searching for reinz (over 7.000.000 results) or Reiny (german keyboard layout, y and z are swapped), and had typos in their search requests. ReiNX would have a lot less requests if those kind of typos weren't that common. But yea, people know what's good for them I guess.

    People who searched for SX OS are dummies who need to be hand-held through everything, and didn't know where to look.

    ReiNX users know to go directly to GBATemp, or the SwitchHacks reddit, or the discord channel they've already joined, or the GitHub repo...

    ReiNX because its free. If there is a crack for SX OS will probably use it. Don't want to pay for stuff that I can get for free.

    Some Reinx traffic was also driven from YouTube vidoes (tutorials)

    I don't think that a proper comparison is possible as the discussion will be, SX has Xci and ReiNX is free and "I won't pay for a piracy software"..and so on. I think we have enough threads about this. But sorry for the disappointment.

    I think it's more the other way around. Like it nor not, SX OS is simpler to use, ReiNX needs more search to find out how to use properly

    The problem is that the use of search results just reads like another p***ing match between the two and is just adding fuel to the fire, especially when there could be numerous reasons behind search analytics e.g. a 'shout out', the release of a new version/features, etc.

    I'd suggest also giving an actual link to the source since it makes actual data analysis easier, essential given the above (I'm guessing you took the image yesterday?):

    Too bad we can't add Atmosphere in there, people search that word like crazy.

    Not really sure what information is to be gleaned from this though.

    Wow, that went right over your head. I can tell you're one of those people.

    Yes, SX OS is simpler to use. Which is why the people who need their hand held are the ones who use it. It's these same people who have to Google everything because they don't know where to look.

    They do though...the official site explains everything, they have to go there to get the OS anyway and there's an FAQ there. So they DO know where to look. They might not know the exact site but they know where to look. And it's not just that, not by a long shot. SX OS is better known as it's more advertised unlike the free alternatives

    I think you're wrong. Hints why there's constantly sxos users asking for help on here, discord, DU etc. instead of going to the TX page where their questions should be asked considering it's the home of sxos. Reinx needs more search to find out how to use properly? Nope, not really. Not when Reinx originated on here/discord with an installation guide. Where most of it's users also originated from. Also search result percentage can not be used to compare considering searching for SXOS could be a person searching for TX hardware such as a dongle and not TX software

    I confirm that the link reflects what I have posted previously. The intention was merely to share Google trends results hopefully no one is gonna start a flight.
