It's a Hints holiday (sort of), plus a poll... Site News
Today is President's Day here in the USA, and its one of the official holidays at Macworld as well. So technically, there shouldn't be anything to see here today.

However, after too many years of early morning starts, I found myself sitting here at the computer anyway, so I've posted this week's Pick of the Week along with one other hint I wrote.

In addition, I've posted a new poll that a couple of developer friends asked me to run on their behalf: they're curious as to which releases of OS X are in use out there. I belive that the macosxhints' readership will be highly skewed towards 10.4 (more so than the general population), but I thought it'd be an interesting poll. Feel free to pass the poll URL around to others who may not normally read here; it'd be great to get as wide a sample as possible.

If you're in the US, enjoy the holiday -- I'm off to spend the day with my wife and daughter.

FWIW, OmniGroup share their own stats for OS usage as culled from their software update mechanism:

There is probably bias in these stats too, but could it be very interesting for a comparison once your poll ends (at the moment they are quite similar).

PB G4, 1.5 GHz, 2x512MB RAM, 128MB VRAM, 80 GB 5400rpm HD, SuperDrive, MacOS X 10.4.4

Wow, now *that's* a cool page. I'm going to add it to our links section, as I find it fascinating...

How do I vote? I can only see the results - no way to put my own vote in. I can see the number of votes going up, though. BTW I have 10.4, my wife has 10.3.

Seems your wife (or someone else on your IP) must have already voted...
