How many RoR engineers use Mac / Linux / Windows?


#1

I wonder if most of the people using RoR is using it on Mac? How about
we make a tally here… we can enter our platform here and see what
other engineers are using:

thanks.

Jian, are you talking about RoR development or deployment?

Here’s a better question(s):

How many software engineers are using X platform for RoR development?

How many software engineers are using X platform for RoR deployment?

Well if you’ve ever been to railsconf it’s pretty obvious that just
about everyone has a mac.

So, if everyone at Railsconf just … jumped off a cliff, would you?

I wouldn’t but it would still be an accurate statement to say that
most people at railsconf jumped off cliffs. I don’t think the OP was
asking ‘what should I use’, rather ‘what do people use’

is it true that surveymonkey.com won’t show the survey answers to
general users who voted? (unless the survey creator is not using a
basic account)…

so the result so far is:

Mac: 10
Linux: 9
Windows: 4
Other: 1
