Default Operating System poll

I couldn't find find any Operating System polls on Dominions3 forum. There are probably some such polls on Dominions2 forum, but I already found a good excuse for doing it all over again, you see.

How do I post polls here ? Let's see...

You dont quite support me, and possibly others. The multiple-OS's doesnt seem to support multiple os in the house (not dual boot)

I have 3 desktops in my house (mine, wife, one son) which all run WinXP. And I have 2 servers which run Linux. Im not quite ready to run linux as a desktop, and I wouldnt consider using anything else for a server. I do plan to get a mac one day though (probably become my other sons computer)

If this is headed toward swaying anything in the development of the game, Im afraid it wont have an impact. This is not a windows game that is trying to support other OS's. Its a linux game which is being modified to also run on mac and windows. I dont think that any numbers will change that.

In your case, Gandalf (is it actually your name !?) I'd pick Windows, Windows/Linux. It's not that important that these system run on different machines.

I don't have any problems with Dominions3 being a Linux game. None at all.

Gee, no choice for "primarily Mac o/s, with a W*nd*ws system for games that won't run on a real o/s, and a Linux box as a toy"?

Home: 3 XP desktops, 2 xp laptops, 1 RH FC5 media server.
Work: 1 XP desktop, 1 RH FC5 64bit desktop, 1 XP laptop, 120 Linux servers, 12 AIX servers, 15 Solaris servers, 10 2K servers, various sundry others.

XP for games. Linux for anything serious--music, video, biohazard analysis, cardiopulmanry diagnostics, etc.

Macs are for people over 50 according to the latests demographics polls Apple conducted then tried to squelch....

I heard about that research, too.
That's what I'm led to believe. Despite occasional claims that Macs are more numerous than Linux boxes(or at least as numerous), they certainly aren't popular in gaming communities. Each time I see an Operating System Poll somewhere, Macs come last. Which means either:
- Mac people aren't really interested in games
- There are much more linux users than most people think. It wouldn't suprise me considering how hard it is to measure actual popularity of Linux
- possibly both of the above

Excellent! I'd love to be associated with the group most likely to have the most free time and money.
