This information can help in debugging Attract Mode.
If there is a system that you would like to add ie. a speciffic macOS/OSX version please leave a note.

I am using a total of three systems now. My target platforms are different than my development platform. Can we check off more than one?

Dev: Mac 10.13.6
Mach: Win 10 1607 enterprise
Proj: Raspbian lite 10/09/2018

I was thinking about the target platform as a singular answer. Anyway, I believe there was an option to allow more than 1 vote, but now it's gone when I edit the poll. I would need to recreate it.

I usually use AM in Windows 10, especially to develop themes and scripts, but in my macbook and mi macmini, i use macOS, in my raspi, Raspbian, and in my laptop i use Lubuntu, and in all i have AM installed, but the voting only allows to choose one option...   Oomek, change this, please...  :P

Mahuti has changed the voting to multiselection. You can remove your vote and then select more than one system.

Raspbian is a Linux variant, so listing it next to "Linux" may be a bit confusing. Maybe "Raspbian Linux" and "other Linux" would've been better. Or "Linux for ARM (e.g. Raspbian)" and "Linux for x86/x64", since the cpu architecture may be more important for debugging purposes than the Linux variant.

Anyway, I'm using AM on Linux, specifically Kubuntu 14.04 + 18.04 and Raspbian-based Retropie 4.4.

Yes I'm aware that Raspbian is a Linux distro. Separation was deliberate, because AM on RPI is compiled with OpenGL-ES version of SFML. I've followed your suggestion.

Luckily, there is no one who uses Vista... :D
What i do not understand is why someone is still using Windows 8...  :o

Interesting to see that Unix based systems are on par with Windows based systems, but still only 15 people voted for the poll so it's probably a very skewed statistic...

Your on a forum where there is a good amount of people interested in some form of developing. I would expect a somewhat even split with windows and unix based systems. Ask this poll on any arcade related facebook group, and I bet you will get either windows or „raspberry pi“ because most people do not know even know what operating system they have running on their raspberry pi.

Didn't you guys just skew the results? Who is going to vote for Vista or Windows 8 now?

IMO - You should have limited the vote to one (primary) OS (like you started with). I, and many others, have AM on several OSes but I (and most likely others) always play games on one OS.

P.S. There is a long standing Microsoft tradition that every other OS release sucks. Look it up, it's a "thing".
