    Hello,

    Out of curiosity, would it be possible to get a nice little graph to show the different OSs used by people visitng phoronix?

    Thanks

          Actually, up until like a year or so ago, the Windows users count was actually at like 48%.

            Dominating the server statistics with a dial-up connection would qualify for a Guinness record

            Seriously though, what on earth are Windows people doing in here? Yes, there's some trolling going around but 40+%?

                  People looking for Heroes of Newerth keys?
                  Seriously though, not nearly all people are single-OS fanatics.

                    I'm on Windows, taking a break from Linux until the graphics situation settles down a bit. Also, I'm taking a CS course taught in C# and the instructor wants Visual Studio project folders turned in. Also, last time I seriously tried Xilinx development on Linux, it was a mess (I hear they have libusb cable drivers now, which would eliminate 90% of the problem).

                    By the way, how do we know that the Windows percentage doesn't include a ton of ReactOS users?

                      I dualboot between Gentoo and Windows 7 rc. Sometimes I'm in Windows when I browse the forum.

                      So maybe it could add up to 41.3% if you add dualbooters to people Phoronixing from work.

                      BTW: Are those percentages of visits, or of unique visitors?

                        Thanks for such a quick response. Any chance we can get Windows XP/Vista/7 seperated?

                        Its just by curiosity, Personally I'm impressed linux is even above windows.

                        Personally I'm on windows at work - cant help it zend 5 runs only in windows and my mandriva box at work has a 15" screen which is horrible. This one has a 22".

                          How about some browser stats?
                          I'm interested in relation to this thread.
                          Also, any comment on the video situation Michael?

                            I'm one of those forced to use Windows at work but exclusively run Linux at home.
