In the News Since it's nigh on impossible to produce accurate figures of operating system usage, we have to make do with figures that provide a rough estimate, at best. One such set of statistics are the figures from Net Applications, which tracks the 160 million monthly visitors to its hosted websites. The latest figures from January 2009 have been published, and they show that the rise of Mac OS X continues, as well as that of the iPhone and iPod Touch. Unsurprisingly, Windows 7 did quite well too.

I am grateful for the deluge of OS related articles on the site though. My pessimism is just expecting this to be the usual "I like blue" vs "I like red" arguments between posters.


Self-fulfilling prophecy, sir.

The more you mention "Oh this will surely devolve into [...]", the more likely it is to happen.

That is the conundrum. The topic itself causes the discussion to be an argument of opinions versus facts but I figured mention it and hope it helps guide the rest of the conversations in a productive direction even if my own threads devolve versus say nothing and watch as all the threads devolve away from any productive information sharing.

We'll see how it goes though. Either way, I'm sure it'll be a high post count by the time everybody moves on.
