who ARE these people?

Erm, I do have a Mac, but erm . . . Look, if Steve Jobs had happened to audit a course in Ancient Greek or Arabic or Hebrew or Japanese or Chinese, rather than a course on calligraphy, I might just possibly have found Quark aiding and abetting my endeavors a decade and a bit ago; the switch to OS X might not have blighted my second book deal.  So it's just a leetle unsettling to find pp a magnet for Macheads.  And even Linuxheads.  But OK OK OK . . .

The regular use of a tool should not be construed by the reader as an indication that the tool represents some ideal pinnacle of toolness; it could just as well mean that the tool is seen by its user as in some way preferable to other tools that are available. Ask not "why are so many people using this tool, or that," but rather "why are so few people trying to make better tools?"

Is it perhaps construed because it is taking apple mobile devices into acct?

Anon: It’s possible; the iOS user-agent identifies as "like Mac OS X", and if the log analyzer used to generate the above graph counts that as being "Mac OS X", mobile devices will inflate the OS X section. Likewise for Android and Linux (typically something like “Linux; U; Android 2.2;”).

I alwas read paperpools on a purebreed Linux PC, by the way :)

As Sheldon Cooper once said: "Ah, Ubuntu, my favourite Linux-based operating system."
