    Default What OS is everyone using?

    A few of the replies in the appears that there are a few Linux users on here. So it had me curious, how many people are using the various Operating systems. Obviously that could be a very open ended question, so I will only be grouping things loosely in the survey.

    You can select all that apply.

    Currently three votes for 'other'.
    I assume Android, which is missing in the poll.
    While Android is Unix like, so is OSX, therefore should be listed. I am quite certain that there are more Android users than strictly Linux users.

    Then we have ChromeOS which is Linux, so maybe some 'other' users may not have fathomed that.

    A lot of people don't even use PCs anymore.

    This era of thoughtless consumption must end so we can encourage a world of creative geniuses rather than consumer idiots.

    I considered android, but my thinking was it's a mobile OS, and wouldn't be the primary OS anyway, I might be wrong on that front.

    Android should definitely be listed as it is NOT merely used on mobile devices.

    Besides, mobile devices are small computers.

    I have ticked all four boxes as I use all four systems.

    Think laterally!

    Dual booting Win 7 and Mint 19 here but Win7 rarely used these days and scheduled for removal in the near future. I can run a minimal Win whatever in VMWare under Mint if I really need to for the odd troublesome Win only software that doesn't play nice in Wine.
