This week's poll was suggested by Transdude1996. It's pretty similar to something we did back in 2014, but oh well. I'm a PC gamer, so Windows gets my vote.

You can submit poll ideas here
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you see yourself still reading manga in 10 years?
Choices:
No, I'll be too busy or interested in other things - votes: 144 (2.7%)
Maybe (I'm not sure)... Depends on a lot of things - votes: 2079 (39.5%)
Yes! Love of my life! - votes: 3043 (57.8%)
There were 5266 total votes.
The poll ended: January 26th 2019

Compared to 10 years ago, we have more people will always love manga. Looks like we weeded the rest out.

Windows, obviously. It's just easier, especially compatibility-wise. I'm no tech wiz, so the only thing I care about re: my OS is ease of use and accessibility; high-end functions don't matter to me at all.

Though I do wonder why Windows for mobile devices is such a gigantic flop. Almost any other phone/tab OS is better than Windows, after all 🤣

Even though I do work on Linux... for personal use I still prefer Windows, even though it is a bad OS, it is just easier for compatibility even if I do know how to use Linux it is still pain in one place...

Windows. My first own PC had Win 98 but I also used Win95 and a really shitty machine from the early 80s that my uncle had. It could only display green on black.
I have a self build Win 10 PC right now and one thing must be made certain. Macs are shit, its a fact of life. Hot damn did I hate using them in professional school or occasionally during university.

Some of the choices are crazy. AmigaOS!?! What decade is this? The late 80s?

Since most applications are built for Windows, there's not much choice.

Wow, wasn't expecting this to crop up so soon.

Anyways, using Windows mostly out of necessity, but have had an increasing interest in using AROS.

I've been a mac user for almost a decade but I do want to move back to Windows, only because I want a gaming PC so I can play even more games.

I still get a decent amount of gaming done on my mac (I can play most popular windows only games on it) but I would like to actually own a high end gaming rig one day.

I'm mainly on Windows 7 (after being reluctantly forced to abandon XP. 7 has a few benefits, but overall...), but I want to get a laptop with Linux (forcing me to learn to use it, when I'm outside. I'd like to have a Windows and a Linux desktop computer, but if I'm not forced to use the Linux one, I'll not bother with it, due to not being so good with it).
Though Windows has been getting more and more shit, these days...

If only Microsoft (and other software developers ...and website creators ...and makers of technology ...and especially everyone involved with smartphones, both in hardware and software) would return to the principles of KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid), efficiency, user friendliness, ease of navigation and overview...
Not chucking in tons of useless nonsense, and massive pictures/buttons...
Not eliminating useful features...
(if I got full control over Microsoft, and got to set the principles on which they should make a new Windows ...and some features they should add, and some tons of "features" they should remove...)

Chrome is a good description of what I talk about, in the previous paragraph
Mac is, as with all Apple products, more about an "image", than actual functionality, usability, or anything. Overpriced and flashy.

Windows 7. I won’t upgrade since then I wouldn’t be able to use Word 2003. 😎

My "preferred" operating system is GNU/Linux (feels way better to use to me, and it's what I have at work), so I put that, but what I actually use at home is Windows because, you know, I do still want to be able to play my games. I just don't think the availability of games is a trait that you can attribute to the operating system itself. People don't develop games for windows because windows is the best operating system to run games on, they develop games for windows because windows is the OS that gamers use :/

I mean, as much as I dislike things about Windows, it's still the OS I mainly use... just because it's the easiest to understand while still having enough flexibility for the user.

MacOS is too limited for me, and every build of Linux I've ever tried is way too complicated for me to comprehend... Windows strikes a good balance between the two, despite it's annoyances.

The main thing, however, that is keeping me on Windows is software compatibility. Even outside of games, pretty much every piece of software out there will have a version for Windows, save for a few small outliers here and there that are exclusive to Mac.
There's a lot of programs that also run on Linux, which makes me think it'd be the most viable option to switch to, as long as a version of Linux got released that I can comprehend how to actually use... but I still think there's enough software out there that exclusively runs on Windows that even if that happened, I'd still be a little hesitant to make the change.
