I'm trying to find some data regarding general open source usage and adoption over time. My own impression is that usage and development of open source software is getting more and more common but i don't seem to find any data to support or negate this impression.

Where can i find any good reference regarding the growth of open source?

This are two additional studies/articles from 2017 which show a similar trend: http://opensourcesurvey.org/2017/ https://itsfoss.com/open-source-adoption-europe/
