Over at Daring Fireball, John Gruber has posted a report on the operating system versions used by his site’s visitors. (The almost-brand-new OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard already dominates.) I’m a longtime sucker for this sort of data. So here’s a quick report on the OSes that folks use to visit Technologizer.
These numbers are based on Google Analytics data for the past thirty days. Usage fluctuates enough that if I do this again in a few months–and hey, I probably will–the breakdown might be meaningfully different. But here’s what it is right now.
Sixty-six percent of you used Windows to visit the site:
Twenty-four percent of you use Macs:
Five percent of you used Linux, and Google Analytics isn’t telling me how the distributions broke down, unfortunately. (It’s presumably safe to say that Ubuntu predominates.)
Three percent of you came to the site via an iPhone or an iPod Touch. Not a huge number of folks, but it’s double the figure from a year ago.
Other devices and OSes that people have used to visit Technologizer in the past month–none amount to more than one-tenth of one percent of visitors:
A grand total of zero percent of you visited Technologizer on an Amiga in the past month, which makes me very, very sad…
