"Windows, or Mac?", a question that can split a room... as long as the room contains the right people. Of course, the correct answer is "Linux"...
So, if you can hold off on the "holy war" for a second, please fill in the form, and enjoy the pretty graph (and, before you ask: no, it is not just your imagination; they really is no consistency in the configuration of the graphs...):
UPDATE: I've just done a couple of graphs comparing the preferences.
The first one is the number of people who said they prefer a particular operating system, given as a percentage of the total number of responses. These three figures will, of course, add up to 100%, and so can accurately be represented as a pie chart (that's one reason I wanted to add them: more pie charts...):
This second one shows what Operating System people prefer against which one they use:

The long-awaited, much-anticipated sequel to TROTT's Campaign for Political Correctness 3: TROTT's Campaign for Political Correctness 4!

I've often wondered about these refer-a-friend-and-get-free-stuff things; such as what do they get out of it? But one of my mother's friends and her accountant friend have looked into them, and they do seem to be a viable business, and therefore probably legit.
Apparently they work out a deal with established services for payment for referrals; we sign up to the service, and they pay the get-free-stuff people a little bit for it - which, of course, adds up to the value (and no doubt some profit, too) over the course of the n referrals.
If you're interested, my mother's friend found this one of Apple stuff. She also recommended choosing one of the free services (such as Lovefilm, which has a free trial and is also good in itself (my mother uses them already)).
