Honestly, What Kind of Poll is this!?

I am trying not to be a troll right now, but having an OS quiz on a site the is gear specifically for the Linux OS is not going to give good results, unless you are just trying to figure out if all the people visiting this site are clueless windoze users trying to get help for their AOL problems(don't worry I help people like that too in my free time so I am not that mean, hehe).

I just don't see the point to this quiz, sorry.

When you say `UNIX', I assume you are also referring to operating systems not (yet) legally registered as such (i.e. BSD)? Either way, I chose UNIX. =)

DOS was the best system of all time, except all of the other non-windows ones of course.

This is, of course going to be a completely one-sided thread. Did you really expect people to vote for something other than Linux as the most popular?
