Several weeks ago, I asked readers to answer 11 questions about Windows. More than 1,000 people submitted responses, and while the results aren’t statistically valid, they do shed light on attitudes to Microsoft’s operating system
What do users run?
Not surprisingly, most respondents (74.75%) run some variation of Windows 10, with another 9.7% still on Windows 7. Linux was third, with 5.94%; “other” — a mixture of Windows 11, Windows XP, Chromebook, and even one Windows 98 user — had 4.55%. (I’m just hoping Windows 98 wasn’t used to answer the online survey questions.) The Mac was next, with 1.98%, followed by a smattering of phone platforms.
