Survivability is a significant topic that is vital to the Open Source Software (OSS) community. User download is a metric suggested for measuring the user population size, use and download, to determine software popularity, successability and survivability. The size of the user download is significant as it can help determine a products popularity and users trust. This paper makes two important contributions to the literature: identification of low survival issues in relation to existing projects during survival growth and the significance of project type differences underpinning product age and survival impacts.
