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.

Really all Amiga?

It's clear that Windows is in decline, and both Linux and Mac OS X profit from that. I'm very happy we have such a diverse audience here, especially since we know that the 2% "other" are all Amiga users.

Surely they're not *all* Amiga? What about other variants of Unix - the BSDs and Solaris - and things like Syllable which often get a lot of promotion here (or at least used to).

I must admit, despite having an Android unit and using the Browser app on there often, I've never read this site with it; I mostly read websites that are linked off my Twitter timeline. Does OSNews have a Twitter account? You might get more people reading on mobiles that way. (Then again, Android units would just register as Linux.)

The Amiga thing is a joke.

As for Twitter - yes, someone set up a Twitter account posting our stories. He or she is not affiliated with us, as far as I know.

That's odd. It looks like it's an automated system since it just posts the full header, doesn't even try to leave extra comments out or anything.

Oh well, atleast it's yet another acknowledgement that OSnews is somewhat popular among geeks! ;) (I know I would be seriously depressed if OSnews ever went away, it's the one site I check all the time and I actually enjoy discussing things here.)
