OSNews, Generic OSes Ah yes, why not? The last time we did this, it was March 2009, so it's been two years since we offered a little insight into what kind of operating systems and browsers you, dear readers, are using. In those two years, a lot has changed. I will also explain why in the few cases that OSNews does host video, I will host it in WebM.

I try not to use Flash, because it is simply not the best choice performance-wise for 49% (non-Windows) of our readers (I'm not exactly thrilled about our Flash ads either, in case you're wondering).

First, there are many more people which have flash capable browsers than those who have webm capable browsers. webm is hardware accelerated on what popular platform?

Second, flash is hardware accelerated on both Windows and Mac Os X, that is your majority of users.

If I understand correctly, you chose to support a minority over a large majority?
