On January 24, 2011, I asked the readers of the TechRepublic Microsoft Windows Blog this poll question:Quick Tips and How Do I blog posts to only the professional versions of the Windows operating system.
TechRepublic is really designed from the ground up to be geared toward IT professionals of all stripes, and with that perspective the assumption is that most readers are using the Windows Professional. Of course, all readers are welcome, and we try to be as helpful to as many readers as we can, but we have to make certain assumptions about our readers' level of knowledge.
As you can see from the poll results, the majority of respondents are indeed using one of the professional versions of Windows. Perhaps the most interesting result is that 70% of the respondents are sticking with Windows XP Professional for now.
