How convenient for a lazy bugger like me. My choice was listed first. Debian. : )

Unstickied given the poll's age, there's no way to update the poll options, and we can get similar information from the Steam/SourceForge download counts.

cool, is that info published somewhere on the site or would that make it too easy to game?

For SourceForge it'd just be the weekly downloads of the .dmg vs the .exe files of the most recent version. The steam stats aren't publicly available, but I doubt there's a practical way to game them (plus we don't actually use the percentage of OS usage for anything anyway).

The purpose of this poll is to get an idea of what platforms are being used by our forum members. Note that OS's not currently receiving regular security updates (macOS 10.9 & earlier and Microsoft Vista & earlier) are not listed in the poll. For these, please use 'None of the Above' and comment in this thread.

I wonder if it'll run on my Windows 98 SE. Unlikely I imagine. Probably requires more than 128 MB of RAM. I won't speculate about my Windows 95C or my DOS 6.22 or my DOS 3.2 or my C=128 & Atari 800... <grin> Hmmm how to squish Wesnoth into 48 KB of RAM... well that's OK, someone once squished Star Raiders into 8 KB! Good enough. Brilliant in fact. God those old computers are magnificent.
