Multiple choice poll

Maybe you should consider allowing people to select multiple options in the poll. I'm sure many readers also have multiple machines running different versions of OS X.

Yeah, that may be statistically relevant and interesting. But then, how do you distinguish people with several machines who did upgrade all of them? I guess this simple question is not up the task to get a complete view.

The version of Geeklog we're running doesn't support multiple answers, so it can't be done.

The next version has some more-complex polls, but I'm not sure if "more than one" multi-choice is one of the options or not.

Maybe it's best to answer it as "what is the OS on your main machine?" I'm sure there are far more users that have one Mac than multiples, and the percentage that don't use one particular machine more often that others is likely statistically insignificant in regards to the data the poll is trying to glean.
