OS polls...

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Dave - Dave.net.nz, Oct 2, 2004.

  1. Just recently I have been running a poll({blatent plug}on
    www.dave.net.nz) on which OS people use, and well I included 10 options

    Win XP
    Win 2k
    Win 9x
    Lin Debian
    Lin Redhat/Fedora
    Lin Mandrake
    Lin Gentoo
    BSD Net/Free/MacOSX

    which I figured oughta cover it.
    now I have some rather odd(in my mind) results sofar.

    "Other" has the second highest result, and seeing as I only really
    mention my url here, then I assume that it is you guys who are filling
    it in.

    the polling thing that Im using doesnt allow an "other - please specify"
    box so Im a little stuck as to find out what the "other" is.

    Who wants to share?

    Haven't filled in your poll, but I have 3 systems that would fit the
    'other' SUSE, Coyotelinux and Solaris 9 SPARC.

    I've got boxes running Solaris x86, Wang VS/OS and Netware sitting here
    generating heat.

  5. Maybe I should have made a "Lin Other" option... that should have
    atleast caught some of the others.

    There are lots of the 'run off a CD-ROM' distros around these days,
    Knoppix, Gnoppix, Lycoris etc. I have a copy of Puppy Linux on a USB
    flash. Plus the 64 bit versions of Linux are out and about as well.

    Maybe a poll in nz.comp may help?

    I'm using Suse Linux, and I'm sure there are other popular Distros out
    there. Point is you could include a "Other Linux" and "Other Windows", and
    perhaps "Other Apple"...

    There is no such os as Win 2k. There is only Windows 2000.

    Moreover, as many people like youself would tell me, "k" stands for 1024.

    Maybe, but not to date.

    See how easy it was for Dave to take a poll and the results showed up that
    there were a great deal more bases out there than he thought there were.

    Asking the correct question is more important than anything else, answer

    I have one win98 box, one Smoothwall (customised RedHat) box, one FreeBSD
    box, one Mandrake 10_32 and one Mandrake 10_64 box - and one box presently
    in pieces but which probably will be a *BSD or a Solaris box.
