Front page OS poll: an observation

Recommended Posts

Ice_Blue    973

As of 4:30 p.m. today (GMT-4):

 

6,477 members has voted.

 

Out of these:

 

64% use Windows 8/8.1 (4,127 votes)

 

28% use Windows 7 (1,842 votes)

 

0.1% use Vista (51 votes)

 

0.3% use XP (208 votes)

 

0.4% use Other OS (249 votes)

 

 

Interesting.

This would mean the vast majority of Neowin members are on Windows 8./8.1

 

I had expected from reading the various forum topics that it would be around the same numbers for Windows 8 vs Windows 7 (or maybe slightly in favour of Windows 8/8.1).

 

However, the percentages only add up to 92.8% ? Rounding errors?

28.4% use Windows 7 (1,842 votes)

 

0.8% use Vista (51 votes)

 

3.2% use XP (208 votes)

The percentages must be a bit wonky, because the numerical values add up correctly. Odd.

Ah. My bad then.

 

Thanks for the correction.

Back to Form 1 maths.

Mea culpa.

 

I forgot to carry the decimal point 2 places to the right.

Either way, we appear to be a community of tech-oriented people looking for the next piece of tech to mess around with. Who would have thought? :p

Sorry if sarcasm but that's only the people who voted on the poll.

Yes, I just love the "This would mean the vast majority of Neowin members are on Windows 8./8.1", when your sample size is a fraction of the actual users...

 

Maybe it should read, a vast majority of the people voting in the poll are Windows 8 users.
