    Win XP - 203941
    Win Vista - 64571
    Windows 7 - 54701
    Mac - 25533


    An near the bottom:

    Win 98 - 111

    Which in a way is not all that surprising is it, given the user base?

    What do the numbers mean? Is it visitors (I know there are fewer than 203,941 members but I'd guess lots of people visit anonymously) or is it just pages retrieved? (ie if I visit Edugeeek 10 times today from a Windows 7 machine does that count as 10??)

    I'd guess what I'm asking is does that tell me the number of unique machines visiting the site or the number of visits (so someone who has the page auto-refreshing every 10 seconds counts an awful lot!)

    Nice to see MAC is a long way down, shows that Windows is King Surprised how high up 7 is though, has it gone higher since the launch of it or just a gentle gradual increase?

    I would be interested to know the Win95 users though :O

    It is every indivigual computer that visits Edugeek, It wouldn't be anything to shout about if it was every time someone visited the site really would it?

    I am interested in seeing the Windows95 users! :O

    Wow - people still using Windows 95, 98 & ME - surely some risk there particularly with the 95 & 98 machines on the Internet?

    More to the point, who the poor luckless ones using Windows ME are? ;-)

    Oh dear, to be topical I could say that excuse has already been used this week by the PM Gordon Brown - BBC NEWS | Politics | Grieving mother's challenge to PM but it is bad taste really.

    As for 'Nix I'd guess its rather low.

    Got to admit, I'd be interested in seeing a more complete list. Between Mac and Win98 is it just several different flavours of Linux/BSD or are there som other truely obscure OS popping up like Haiku?
