It's fundamentally the wrong question.  I use gcc, emacs, and X windows,
and firefox, and a mail reader called "mm."  Most of the time this
is on solaris and/or linux, but my windows laptop does a fine job
as an X-terminal, and so does my mac at home.  I use EAGLE, which
works on both the mac and windows systems.  I use microsoft office
on the windows and mac, and open office instead sometimes. At home,
I use a mac cause it had one of the cheaper big screens (at the time.)
I rather like iPhoto and iMovie, and the Apple Mail.app isn't too bad.
The kids all have windows boxes cause they need their games and such.
I'm willing to run whatever hardware and OS needed to get my job done.
The applications are more important (and frequently more expensive)
than the hardware these days.  I get discouraged if I have to become
too much of a "systems administrator" rather than a user, but that's
happened on all the OSes at one time or another (the most recent really
bad experience was on linux, but it was more a "clueless IT" issue
than a fundamental linux problem.)

Tsk, you're not suppose to show your bias when doing a survey (WINDOZE), and
you forgot the mainframes and Unix variants.

Beside, the OS really isn't that important to most people.  A better survey
would have been what application do you use to perform a particular task, eg
browsing, photo editing, spreadsheet etc.

My position has always been that the worlds most popular OS is MS Office.

In my case:

WINDOZE        85%
SOLARIS        10%
OTHER                5%        (AS400, whatever they run)

100% Windows (XP and 2000) at home and work, but I use MINGW to give me a proper command shell and the basic *nix utilities.
