I have a new stats engine on my blog and have been accumulating additional stats for about three weeks. Out of curiosity, I ran the report of the operating systems of those who read my blog. The results are quite enlightening:
Windows XP 88%
Windows NT 4.0 3% Windows Home Server 2% Windows Vista 2% Windows 2000 1% Others 3% Total 100%
What is interesting is that the vast majority of readers are using Windows XP, not Vista. Vista is listed fourth at only 2%, slightly ahead of Windows 2000 and behind Windows NT 4.0.
I wish I knew the breakdown for “other.” I assume that Apple OS are included there, but would have expected a higher number — or maybe Apple owners don’t read this blog.
Although this is not conclusive and certainly not a statistically significant analysis, it is interesting and insightful, nonetheless.
