OSNews, Generic OSes Recently we've had a couple of articles and discussions on OSNews about browser statistics. Every now and then someone in the comments will ask what OSNews statitstics are like, and what browsers and operating systems our readers are running. Well, recently we installed a fancy new web site analytics program, Mint. I figured I might as well put it to good use by showing some of the browser and platform statistics we've gathered over the past month.

Stats can always be manipulated to say whatever you want, we all know this.

This example is pretty useless, I browse the site on my main machine, and my secondary laptop, and my work machine.

My main machine dual boots between Ubuntu and PC-BSD, my laptop between Ubuntu and WinXP and my work machine between XP and Vista.

So I will be showing up with a few skewed results.

What would be better, is, if Thom can come up with a poll that asks what our preferences for a Primary OS and Primary browser are.

After all, in work, I WISH I was using something else.
