Just one comment here - that survey looks so completely foobar it hurts.

The OS stats goes against every other stat available on this area.
If OSX really is 26% of their users then its weird 35% prefer a Windows
only dev environment (Visual Studio).

Unless stack overflow would also publish the actual OS usage stats they
track I seriously
distrust that survey.

Getting off topic, but where is the inconsistency there? The survey shows

50% of developers using Windows, so 35% using VS is not inconsistent with

that. The survey certainly has the problem that some questions are "pick
one" and others are "pick all that apply", which skews some of the results.

True, I added up numbers wrong here and missed Windows 7.

Then the main issue is that the OS numbers just don't seem to reflect any other measurements out there.

I would love it if they didn't just show the manually entered survey numbers vs their
actual user logs on StackOverflow.
