This is very interesting data so far, and I almost want to believe it's not right, but currently the most popular OS for bitcointalk.org is Linux. This tells me that the bitcoin community very much still geeky. Consider that in the general population Linux is only on about 1.6% of desktops according to Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_operating_systems
In 2011 it was 56.9% for Linux ( https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2891 )
Now in 2013 it seems to be 37.6% so far.

Definitely still more geeky than an average community, but you can see a trend.
I use Ubuntu as my main os. Smiley

Please add the major mobile OSes to the poll.

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

I think someone should make a separate poll for mobile OS.

I should have put Arch on there but I didn't think of it, I'll bet it occupies most of the "other linux" piece of the pie.
