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.

Yep. And while I agree with Thom insofar as Flash not going away anytime soon... generalizing OSNews reader trends regarding Flash from his dataset is error prone.
Some users may actually be "uninstalling" flash... but since Chrome integrates its own binary blob of the flash plug-in, Chrome's jump from 8% to 30% may have blurred those "uninstall" numbers. Others may have flash installed (since it's still obnoxiously necessary for functionality on certain sites), but they may have a permission-based blocker ("click to show element") sorta thing running. Both of these serve as confound to the reliability and validity of flash "trends"...
