OSNews, Generic OSes Ah yes, why not? The last time we did this, it was March 2011, so it's been almost a year since we offered a little insight into what kind of operating systems and browsers you, dear readers, are using. Nothing particularly earth-shattering going on here.

Last I checked, you're forced to use Windows to develop for windows phone. This isn't an apple specific problem.
I'm sure google would do the same thing if they sound desktop computers.

It's much less of a problem, when sort of everybody has a Windows machine; hardly anybody has an OSX one. Vista, the "flop" release, has notably more users than OSX.

And those few percentages not only possibly overstate things (the way OSX users are probably more web-active on average, particularly on sites less likely to be overlooked by Statcounter), they are also a reflection of maybe dozen, tops, atypical countries.
(check out the graphs for S. America, Africa, Asia - you know, the continents where MOST PEOPLE, by now probably most computer users, live)

Trying to portray it as the same kind of issue is hilariously inaccurate.

And the closest Google has to a desktop OS, they mostly give away for free...
