More that 9% and growing at more than 100% per year doesn't seem insignificant at all. Windows phone arrived briefly at just over 3% and then immediately declined. The comparison between vue.js and windows phone doesn't make sense at all.

> As of the third quarter of 2013, Gartner reported that Windows Phone holds a worldwide market share of 3.6%, up 123% from the same period in 2012 and outpacing Android's rate of growth.

Sound familiar? (and I assure you, that 3.6% is a whole lot more than a 135k measly installs a day).


That's called 'unsustainable small scale growth'; and it's what you're seeing with vue right now.

A good year over year growth of 2 or 3% is far far far more compelling than a tiny 100% growth rate from nothing to nothing.

Look at chrome's history of growth and that's what you'll see. In fact, if you look at the long term history of all three, that's what you'll see with reacts growth as well: https://npm-stat.com/charts.html?package=react&package=vue&p...

Sure, maybe vue and windows phone are different beasts and they're difficult to compare... but the comparison to chrome makes zero sense either at this point.

This '100% growth' stuff is pure hand waving nonsense. Its obviously unsustainable.

The question is, can vue turn its current trend into a sustainable consistent growth and take on react? I dunno, but I can guarantee you the answer to that question is something that no one knows at this point.
