A week ago, web analytics firm Net Marketshare released their latest monthly report on browser and operating system market share. Looking across the whole of the web, Windows users make up 89% of all web users, while Mac OS X users represent nearly 6%, iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad) represent 2%, and then you get down to the real also-rans (who’s still using WebTV?!).
Okay, so that’s across the web as a whole. But what about Sibelius users? In the past 30 days, 56% of visitors to this blog were using Macs, and 39% were using Windows. Around 3% were visiting from an iOS device, and a further smattering came from Android, Symbian and BlackBerry devices.
Of the 56% of Mac-using visitors, around 86% were running Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard on Intel Macs, 11% were running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard on Intel Macs, and the remainder were running Mac OS X 10.5 or earlier on Macs with PowerPC processors.
Of the 39% of Windows-using visitors, 46% were running Windows 7, 38% were running Windows XP (still!), and 15% were running Windows Vista. The remaining 1% were running various older versions of Windows (one poor soul was actually running Windows ME).
So this got me to thinking: on what operating system(s) do you run Sibelius? Leave your answer in the poll below. It will be interesting to see how the proportion of people responding to the poll match up to the profile of people who visit the web site overall.[polldaddy poll=5034873]
