Well, I voted for Mac OS X, but only on the condition that I get some Apple hardware. It wouldnt be nearly as nice if I ran it on my current machine. I just couldnt see myself being happy with the overall experience of running OS X on a non-Apple machine, regardless of the legal issues presented therein.

Linux I get. And maybe even Vista if it doesn't suck and runs all your games. But XP? Who would ever want to run that unless you absolutely had to. My home PC still runs 2000, and I see no reason to downgrade to XP. Just my opinion.

( he says, typing this on an XP machine at work :( )

That's ridiculous. A huge proportion want to use OS X.... I wonder how apple can use that to its advantage?

I voted XP...cause well, Windows should be the only OS that ever runs on a PC.

Nothing scientific about those numbers--but still a good little "banner ad" for Apple :)

Keep dangling the carrot of OS X on any old PC. It won't happen (not any time soon), but the carrot will lead people to Macs :)
