What OS are you using?
Hi all - I'm doing a bit of random research and wanted to see what other people where using - as a percentage...not explained very well, but you'll get the jist from the poll. I'm talking as a main system here, do you use Windows, Mac, Linux (or other). If you have 50 Macs and 50 Windows machine, sitting on a Windows server, put windows. Again, sorry about the explanation, as well as if i posted this in the wrong place!
* the reason is that I have a carp system to administer her and the headmistress said to me, 'What do other schools use?'. I just want to make sure i was correct in answering Windows in the majority of cases

At home, or at work? On my machine, or in general throughout? If I have 50 macs, 50 windows machines and twenty linux servers, what then?

Sorry - good point! I meant at work, and in your scenario i'd guess i'd say what would be the next machine you bought - out of Windows and Mac!? A bit of a wishy-washy poll i know! I guess what i'm getting at is what is predominantly used in educational environments! Diverse data aggregation - thats any school i've ever been in! Cheers!

Hmm what about if your main Windows server is hosted on a linux based VM host?
14th May 2010, 01:05 PM #5
Ah - that would be windows then, as that's the OS you're actually using as a server (i think!?)

depends how you define 'server'...

I think you should be able to select more than one option

So then it wouldn't be the 'main' OS. It would be the main two OS's or three OS's then. It's his survey, and he defines the questions. You don't know what kind of results they want!

...ah, but then it wouldn't be an overall poll! If i said that you could have had 200 windows PCs and 1 Mac and put both down. Sorry, my poll, my rules!

What will the results be used for?

To find the relation between computer OS's and fish shop orders..... Apparantly, Windows users like Cod and chips, where as linux users like haddock. Mac users prefer the shiny vinegar bottles as they look nice.

@NetmanDH In that case I'll wait to add my answer to the poll

They may be shiny, but if the little hole in the top gets too big and the bottle starts running out of vinegar before it should, you're not allowed to open the top and replace it.
