2 min read

Programmer community site Stack Overflow’s new survey has revealed that the OS X is overshadowing Linux again this year as the more popular operating system among developers and while Windows still leads the pack – currently at 52.2%, combining all major releases,

Last year, Mac edged ahead of the Linuxes as the number 2 operating system among developers.  If OS adoption rates hold steady, by next year’s survey fewer than 50% of developers may be using Windows.

On the Linux side, Ubuntu is tops among them with 12.3% of the entire OS market for developers. Fedora, Mint, and Debian accounted for 1.4%, 1.7%, and 1.9% of all responses, respectively.
