Tony Pascoal noticed on amiga-news.de
that Be News has a poll that also features the Amiga. The question is The next
Operating System I would like to try out soon will be, and one of the possible answers is ElateOS/Amiga.
As of right now, 23.90% out of 1433 voters thought the Amiga was their number one choice. When I checked 200 voters earlier, we were still at place #4.

|I'm always amused at how worked up people get about polls. The Mac news sites frequently announce OS choice polls so their users can stuff the ballot. Be sites and Amiga sites do the same thing as if somewhere in the back room government officials are tallying the votes and planning clandestine move against Microsoft based on this revealing information.|
When in reality the only people ever to look at or care about the results are those people stuffing the ballot boxes to gloat that "we're now at 62.5%!" To webmasters, Polls are simply something to increase page hits, and nothing is as sure of bringing visitors from far and wide as an alternative OS poll.
