as i have mentioned in another thread, i am writing a paper that discusses Microsoft & Competition and i could really use the input of as many members from OCN as possible.

i will be taking only the numbers from this poll and using them to create a chart that shows which OS leads the way - i know this may or may not be largely biased simply do to the fact that we here on OCN are performance perfectionists, but nonetheless, i can state that it was a self created poll.

since my paper is due on wednesday, the day i write my final exam, this poll will close in 1 day, so the more numbers the better.

Thanks!

No, this will be highly biased and not a very good judge of your question at all. You'd be better off putting this question on a gardening forum or something and see what answers you get.

and my paper is on Microsoft & Competition. so if the market is biased, then this poll is a prime example and therefore perfectly acceptable.

Windows, and Sometimes Linux. Depends on what I feel like using on a particular day I guess.
