You poor Windows users. You may as well be driving Fiats. See the light. Cross back over from the Dark Side.

Hahaha! OTOH, I was making a living fixing Windows/PC problems.

At home we have three running PC's. One has Win 95, another has 98 and my Dell is a dual-boot with Win2000 Pro & Win 98 for gaming.

I've installed a backend page that helps me to visually see some of our web stats. Here is a snap shot of the browser/OS section.

Operating system

Every 2 years, whether I need it or not, I buy a new system.
Office is now WIN 95 & 98 and home is Vaio with XP. Think I still have a DOS based PC hanging around somewhere. I must be older than dirt.

Note that the collected browser stats are suspect because many alternative browsers will identify as MSIE to avoid compatibility issues with broken website designs that specify IE as the client browser.

As Saguaro_Nate said, beware the collected browser stats

Opera, for instance, identifies itself as MSIE by deafult....

Why not Mac?

Mac is the best!

Mac 5% or less Others 95% or more
Alfa 1% or less Others 99% or more

It's very similar market share...

Differences
Mac: faster, better quality, easier to operate
Alfa: slower, lower quality, more difficult to maintain

Let's support Mac like we all do for Alfa!!

Take care

The way I see it:

An Alfa can do everything the other cars can and more plus it has the exakt same interface as all the others.
Mac does not have support for some essential stuff and I sure don't know how to operat it.. :p

Nope, they're still strong, but mostly amongs graphics people and students who are looking for those things user friendly. They're kinda like Alfas. Only the superior appreciate them. :D
