According to a Stack Overflow "Web Developer Survey Results 2016" survey, English-speaking users'
"Desktop Operating System"-preference for web-development use is the following (and "by next year's
survey fewer than 50% of developers may be using Windows" – that is, for 2017):[83]

Microsoft Windows: 52.02%    
Apple: 26.2%
Linux kernel based: 21.7%

Looking at device shipments

Android     54.16%
iOS/macOS   12.37%
Windows     11.79%
Other 	    21.66%
