It was just over 2 years ago when we announced 1 Billion installations from the Chocolatey Community Repository. It took us 9 years to get to that number. But here we are now at 2 Billion installations in a less than a quarter of that time.

Dr Evil saying 'Two billion installs?'

The 1 Billion package installations happened on 17 May 2020. At that time we had just under 8,000 unique packages and just over 92,000 total packages. Today we have grown those numbers to just over 9,500 unique packages and a staggering 165,000 total packages! Chocolatey hosts the largest community repository of Windows packages of any software or package manager on Windows today available for use to both our community and customers.

This is all thanks to the hard work by our awesome community of volunteer Community Moderators, individual package maintainers and the Chocolatey Community Chocolatey Packages maintainers. Thank you to each one of you.
