Many thanks to everybody who recently took a minute voting in the “FreeBSD Installer preference” poll and the “FreeBSD version usage” poll.
Below the numbers, percentages and the charts.
These polls are in no way scientific and may not be reflective of views and preferences of the FreeBSD community as a whole, but they give some interesting pictures.
There are at least two servers with FreeBSD 1.x churning away and at least 13 are still running FreeBSD 4.x. I suppose these are cases of “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it”. About 80% of the votes were for FreeBSD 7.x and 8.x.
Interestingly, about 50% of the votes were for a FreeBSD installer where you can choose to go either GUI or ncurses.
