Poll: Which OS do you use Atom on primarily?


Hi guys,

Following on from the other topic on Linux distros, I thought I’d go ahead and open the battle ground.


  1. If you use more than one OS, choose whichever you use the most.
  2. I tried including lots of versions, but choose whatever is the closest to yours.
  3. I have looked up latest versions for all those Linuxeseseses out there, but some only get rolling updates and I simply left it at that in those cases.
  4. If I haven’t listed your OS at all, it’s not a sign of disrespect, just ignorance.
  5. Any OS I add after the first vote was cast, will show up at the bottom of the list!!!

So here you go:

  • OS-X 10.10 Dev preview
  • OS-X 10.9 Mavericks
  • OS-X 10.8 and below
  • Windows 8 / 8.1
  • Windows 7 32bit
  • Windows 7 64bit
  • (X/K/Bla)Ubuntu 14.04
  • (X/K/Bla)Ubuntu 13.10 and below
  • CentOS 7
  • CentOS 6.5 and below
  • Elementary OS Freya (Beta)
  • Elementary OS Luna or below
  • Fedora 20 Heisenbug
  • Fedora 19 Schrödinger’s Cat or below
  • Mint 17 Qiana
  • Mint 16 Petra or below
  • Arch Linux
  • Debian 7.6 Wheezy
  • Debian 6 Squeeze and below
  • Gentoo
  • FreeBSD 10
  • FreeBSD 9 and below
  • HAL 9000
  • Other Linux distro
  • Other OS entirely

You may also want to add OSX 10.10 as many devs may have installed the developper preview (as I have)


Done, thanks for the tip.
For some reason it only shows up at the bottom, though :confused:


By the way, it’s OS X not OS-X :wink:


My apologies. I fear if I change them they will be moved to the bottom of the list :worried:


This sentence is slightly misleading: “If you use more than one OS, choose whichever you use the most.”

I think you wanted to ask on which OS do I use Atom the most, right? I use Windows more than OSX, but “Atom on OSX” more than “Atom on Windows”. :smile:


I trust that, like you, people are clever enough to figure that one out. :wink:


:blush: Point taken. Touché. :blush:


Quick rollup as of this update:

  1. OS X 10.9: 27 votes

  2. Win7 64bit: 11 votes

  3. OS X 10.10: 9 votes

  4. Win 8 / 8.1: 7 votes

  5. Ubuntu 14.04: 7 votes

@leedohm Any chance this could be made a sticky to keep getting votes in?

Corrected numbers.


I’ll pin it for a week.

pinned #11


@batjko I think you have missed the first entry:

OS-X 10.9 Mavericks   27 votes

OS X is still the dominant OS here (36).


Sorry, that must have been subconscious. I knew I was surprised at Windows coming out on top. :wink:
No insult intended, I swear, and it’s now corrected.


Another roll-up as of today:

I have ignored the single votes.

Btw, @leedohm I’m sure this was long enough for a pin. This is probably a good overview by now.

unpinned #15


Debian 8 is not listed here, so I voted ‘other Linux distro’
