Little operating system survey

Hey everyone,

We're trying to get a sense of what OS's people are going to want to use light table on so we can focus on the most important ones first. Mind filling in this survey? It's only one question :)

      Am I missing something? The $15 pledge is for a license for light table, then a $30 pledge is for the T-shirt. But the T-shirt+license is $80?

      I get a message: Sorry, but this form is no longer accepting submissions.
      That is rather quick.
      OS X Lion for me.

      Survey didn't work for me. Fedora and Windows 7

      OS X Lion (and likely Mountain Lion of course)

    10. Jonathan Tomek on

      The survey ended really early, but I use Mac OS X and FreeBSD.

      Second the above.

    14. Eric Ferraiuolo on

      Why is the survey already closed?

    15. jeroen on

      OS X for me

      Peter Tillemans on

      That was fast : got the mail at 02:03 and survey closed at 17:22. Well, Linux for me.

      Guys, don't pick up that much MacOS, europe users are doomed because mac will not run on virtualbox and we cant install it on our hardware either :D ... and still this is just preliminary for alpha stages I would guess, I'm sure betas (which can be used) will be for more OS's .. :)

    18. JMatt Peterson on

      I'm also seeing the error:

      "Sorry, but this form is no longer accepting submissions."

      in order of use: Mac, Linux, iOS, Windows.

      Had to leave feedback because the survey was closed. Can you open the survey again and provide the results?

      MacOSX for me.

      Steve Wadsworth on

      That was a bit quick! I've only just seen the email and the survey is closed.
      Anyway: Linux, Mac/iOS, Windows in that order.

    21. Dave Everitt on

      I also got: "Sorry, but this form is no longer accepting submissions." Anyway, OS X and (possibly although I'm only just starting to think about coding on an iPad) iOS.

      Sundeep on

      Missed the survey

      Windows and Linux Mint in the same order.

    23. Lyosha Luffedelly on

      "Sorry, but this form is no longer accepting submissions."
      Mac OS X 10.7.4

      Sources and binary packages (debian, fedora, arch) for linux :)

    25. David Thompson on

      "Sorry, but this form is no longer accepting submissions."

      Also, Windows 7.

      Mike on

      OS X 10.7

    27. Jonathan Barrett on

      Well that wasn't open for long. I didn't even think this was in question, and it raises another question: what of those who have pledged to receive early access that may now not have a compatible binary to play with?

      Missed it... Windows & Ubuntu

    29. Alan Plum on

      Linux. Going by what most programmers working with the languages you plan to support initially seem to be using, I'd guess *nix support should be the initial focus, i.e. Linux and MacOS X.

      Android would be great !

    33. Dieter Verschueren on

      Sven Bendel on

      Already closed? :( Count me in for Linux (esp. Ubuntu).

      David Adrian on

      Disappointed that the vote has already closed and furthermore how the vote came out.
      That Ubuntu is above Linux - other was to be expected, though silly. But please! don't start optimizing the application for a single linux distribution.

      +Linux (Arch Linux)

    37. Mattias Petter Johansson on

      Closed. Heh, influence fail. It's okay this time I guess, but don't make it a habit, remember that some people paid money to influence.

      Ian Cannings on

      Big Fail. Likewise - oops, woke up, read email, clicked, oops, US only survey then ;-) - Windows, OS X, Linux.

    39. Oli Wright on

      Yep, survey closed. Failcakes. Windows, OS X, Android, Linux in preference order methinks.

      Roland Ütücüyan on

      2000 limit + opening form at 3 in the night = no votes for me...
      Anyway, another gentoo linux user here. Would also be happy with Android - the horsepower is actually out there nowadays...

    41. Chris Bearcroft on

      Windows, OS X and Linux for me.

    42. Stephen Angell on

      +1 for windows - though looking at the results I see I am in the minority :-)

    43. Stephen Feyrer on

      Gentoo Linux, new survey please.
