Last week we asked you which version of Windows you’re currently using Which Version of Windows Are You Currently Using? [MakeUseOf Poll] Which Version of Windows Are You Currently Using? [MakeUseOf Poll] Has anything changed in 4 years? It's time to find out! Tell us which version of Windows you're using right now. Read More . Back in 2010, Windows XP and Windows 7 battled it out to a marginal win for Windows 7. How do things look in 2014? Almost 4,000 votes tell the true story.

3,939 readers voted in total, and these are the final results: Less than 1% of the readers use either Windows 2000 or an older version; 2.5% use Windows Vista; 4% (only!) use Windows 8; 11% currently use Windows XP; 26.5% use Windows 8.1; and a full 50% of the voters use Windows 7 as their primary operating system.

An additional 5% of the voters don’t use Windows at all, but I assume most Mac and Linux users simply didn’t vote in this poll.

All in all, it seems the approaching doom of Windows XP will not affect our readers that badly. Most of you aren’t using XP anyway!

Gary made an unconventional case Which Version of Windows Are You Currently Using? [MakeUseOf Poll] Which Version of Windows Are You Currently Using? [MakeUseOf Poll] Has anything changed in 4 years? It's time to find out! Tell us which version of Windows you're using right now. Read More for Windows 8, and even for its unpopular Modern interface. Before you believe everything you read about Windows 8, you might want to read Gary’s and some of the other comments on last week’s poll.

I have been a Windows phone 7 and 8 user so I was anxious to change from Windows 7 to Windows 8. Don’t believe all of the negative tech writers’ opinions of Windows 8, I think it is great. The live tiles give me information at a glance, weather, news headlines, stock market, etc. Of course it is a change from the years old Windows desktop but one that is easy to adapt to and more dynamic. I do not own a touch screen monitor and have had absolutely no problems or issues manuvering through the “Modern” interface with my mouse and scroll wheel. I actually have a 3 monitor setup. Overall I am very glad that I made the transition to Windows 8 (and 8.1).

How Many Apple Products Do You Own?

Love our t-shirts? The best comment in this poll will get one of our geeky t-shirts. That’s right, for free! So get commenting!

Last week we gave undivided attention to Microsoft, so it’s only fair to look at Apple this week. It’s been said that Apple might be losing some of its popularity. It’s been said that Apple products are just too expensive. But while all these things are being said, people still buy Macs, iPhones, iPads and iPods by the millions. Is Apple really falling from grace? Tell us how many Apple products you have at home!


Done voting? Now hit the comments and tell us which Apple products you own. Is it an old iPad or the newest MacBook Pro? Why did you choose these products over the alternatives? Share your thoughts!

    I own an iPhone 5C 8GB, which I got in April 2015, I own a 13" Mac Book Pro that i've had since June 2014, and I own 2 iPod shuffles, one 2nd generation (1GB), which i've had for years and one 4th generation (2GB), which I got today! I love all my Apple products and use them daily!

    Currently, I own 13 ipods, 1 iPad mini first gen., and 1 iPhone 4. I really love apple and their products I just wish they were a little more inexpensive. I did have an old school Macbook (it came out around the time the first iPod came out) but it crashed and I traded it in for a PC. I really wish they could bring back the ipod classic. Mainly because I really love the design and it was the only iPod that had the classic click wheel.

    As none of my apple products have really "gone bad" i just recently realized how much redundancy I have in the apple products. 60 gb iPod classic, new iPod nano, iPod touch, (all of these are essentially pointless once i bought the iPhone 5). I also have an iPad mini which is becoming less useful as I utilize my kindle more and more and am learning to navigate my macbook more efficiently. I love apple, I love it's products, but as I've seen the new iPod 6 plus. I certainly feel that would completely eliminate 4 of my five items; which i would be completely comfortable with.

    I own two products, an iPhone4 and a Macbook Pro Retina 13" (recently acquired).
    I'm not here to feed the Windows vs. Apple war which, in my opinion, doesn't make much sense. Everyone has their own opinions and preferences, and as long as we're happy with our choice, nothing else really matters.
    But what I do care for in having these different Apple products is the integration. This is something that is becoming more efficient and effective in recent years as the both OSX and iOS become - I'd dare to say - one in the same. Sure, they're not the same in terms of appearance (nor should they be, considering the interaction), but the Apple engineers have been doing a nice job of making sure that different Apple devices live in almost perfect harmony. What we have on one device is almost immediately synced and available on the other - maps, notes, docs. This is even more evident in native Apple apps/software (e.g. Safari, off the top of my head). I definitely think that's a clear plus for Apple.

    Still a PC person at heart even though my first "real" computer was an Apple 2E. So appreciated the way Apple service took care of an out of warranty product (not mine) that when it came time for a smartphone I got a iPhone 5S, then an iPad, then an Apple TV. Add to that collection is an iPod Shuffle and an iPod which bring the total to five. Still nursing Windows 7 in my computer.

    I have not used Apple for several years; used a Touch, and tried several things but moved to Windows for my server and the new Windows Phone for mobile. It doesn't make much sense any more to go Apple. I want devices compatible, and that lite duty trend of the last few years seems to be passing. People are getting more involved with their computer devices like they were 10 or 12 years ago, looking more for programs than apps. I haven't downloaded an app in over 8 months! I even saw a small add-on screen that plugged into a tablet the other day. I guess they need more space. I'm sorry if this is not what you want to hear, but it seems to be what's happening.

    My house used to be a 100% Windows house. I swore I wasn't going to give into the Apple fanfare. But then...it happened. My wife...she got an iPhone 4s. And it was all down hill from there...

    ...and by down hill, I mean A RACE TO THE TOP OF AWESOME MOUNTAIN, YEAH!

    So - here's the progression: my wife gets an iPhone 4s. Shortly thereafter, my sister (who is a mid-level manager at Apple corporate & has been inSISting that I would love Apple stuffs if I'd only give it a try) approached me at home in Austin, Texas one trip & said "Hey...I know you're curious about trying Apple stuffs...and I just so happen to have a spare iPhone 4 you can take out and kick the tires for a bit if you'd like?" So I took her up on it (had to see why my wife was so in love with her iPhone 4s)...and while I HATED the 3G speeds (at the time I had a Motorola RAZR Maxx - 4G & AMAZING battery life), I was kinda digging several other aspects of iOS & the iPhone. For one - it just worked. Now I'd been an Android fanboy ever since the OS came out...and still have a soft spot for it in my heart of hearts...but I tend to tinker, perhaps, a wee bit much...and have left my Android phones stuttering and in poor shape much more than once. The iPhone's simplicity was intriguing...as were some insanely awesome apps I just couldn't get on the Android market. So I used that iPhone 4 for about 3+ months...and then Best Buy had a deal where you could trade in any iPhone for a free iPhone 5 (plus a 2-year contract extension, of course). I asked the sis if she'd mind loosing her iPhone 4, to which she replied "Glad to have ya in the family :) Go for it!". And once I had that iPhone 5...I was really hooked. I shortly there after went out and bought a Macbook Pro (thanks sis for the 25% discount! trying to fully integrate my iPhone with my Windows laptop of a royal pain in the tooshie)...and also bought a Macbook Air for the wife for Christmas. About 6 months later, I convinced my boss that I needed a 64GB iPad for testing purposes :) ...and just last week bought an Airport Express wireless router to use when I travel (as most hotel wifi is THE suck!). Sooo...that puts our Apple household at...1 carry the 4...times 37...squared to the 2nd...6 Apple products en total thus far.

    And this is a trend I don't see ending ANYtime soon.

    I'd love to find a 20th Anniversary Macintosh (TAM) if anyone has one they want to get rid of.

    Most were picked up at yard sales / thrift stores for next to nothing. Never paid full price for any of them. The few times I've had to deal with Apple support they have been great.

    I just have an iPhone 3GS that I got for free, working as a freelancer for a very kind client, who had no use for the phone. I find the phone amazing, for it's design and it's performance as well, even though it can't be compared to the devices on the market today.
    I love my Apple "slice". Sure you have no bluetooth connection with other phones, you can't share your WiFi or play the latest games. But this phone organizes me better, I get emails sooner that on my Windows 8 Metro app. I have email and calendar with me everywhere, games from casual to racing simulators. Every other smartphone has all of this and more, but before Apple came up with the smartphone design we all use today, no other company has dared making something as thorough as the iPhone.
    I find Apple to be a more refined/fluid experience, if not a complete one.I might not use Apple in the future, but I have alot of respect for this company and it's breakthroughs/inventions.

    2009 and 2011 MacBooks Pro, iPhone 4 (me), iPhone 5 (wife), iPod, iPad (3rd gen), iPad (2nd gen), Apple TV. I started with a 2001 iBook for work. Bought myself a Power Mac G5 (speedy) and later MacBook Pro (even faster). My 2011 MacBook Pro is the best computer I've ever used, though I use the iPad (3rd gen) more now.

    I own a MacBook Air (13in), an iMAC, an iTouch, 2 iPods (borh Classic), and an older MacBook which I am giving to one of my sons.
    I have simply never been dissatisfied with Apple or the quality of their telephone tech service, which has been excellent.
    The clarity of their graphics and the quality of their screen rendering of colors is unrivaled.
    The UI is intuitive, straightforward and just plain beautiful!
    I use the latest version of Firefox as my primary browser and had very little difficulty toggling between and Safari (Apple's native browser).
    I used to not care for iTunes much, but over the years they have gotten a bit less proprietary with their downloads (and others as well).
    I have worked with many versions of Windows (mostly in office environments) and have been so frustrated that when able, I bring my MacBook to work to do my heavy lifting.
    I don't use an iPhone, though everyone else in my household seems enamored with them.
    I use a Motorola Moto Maxx, which works just fine (how many useful things can a smartphone do anyway.
    We have Apple TV (Marvelous!), and an Apple Airport Extreme as our main router (with two Expresses in other part of the house).
    I guess you could say thought we are hooked, which has worked out to be not such a bad thing after all.

    Didn't realize how many Apple products I own. My very first computer was a Mac Classic with two Imagewriter printers. I still have them because I can't bear the thought of getting rid of them. That little computer was more darn fun, but couln't be used to access the internet, so I bought my first Windows PC-Windows 98-I still use it daily, and it runs smooth as silk. Later, I bought a newer pc-2002- with XP. I also use this daily and it still works like a champ. I didn't really need another computer, but.... I liked my Mac Classic so much that I always wanted another Mac, so, needed or not, I finally got it/them. I now have a new Macbook Pro and a new Mac Mini. My router is an Airport Extreme, and I also have an older ipod. Am I happy that I bought the Macs? No. I’ve done more hair pulling over those Macs than I ever did with my Windows pcs. Intuitive? Not! More than once I’ve thought of getting rid of them and buying a new Windows machine, but I have so much money into them that I feel like I’m stuck with them. Maybe someday I’ll learn to love them :-(

      Yes, we Apple girls like our accessories. Uh, shoot. I'm a guy. I guess being a newbie computer user, I made the mistake of buying Apple. Doggone, I'm an expert user. Aquariuzz, no offense, but do you know what UNIX is? Cause if you think them Apples is simple, you don't know UNIX.

      I do carry a purse, though. *

While there she saw an iMac 27" and loved it. I told her to get that and I kept the Mac Book. I now own 2 Mac Book Pros, an iPad, iMac27 and we both have iPhone 5s phones. When you go mac you don't go back. PS I work as a network manager on Windows systems. UGH!

    Not because I don't like Apple or too expensive bullshit, but just because I'm quite used to Windows system. I love gaming too and although that landscape is changing it's not fast enough for me to move to Mac yet.
    I use Linux for rest of the work left which I cannot do on Windows (VM inside Windows).
    As mobile front, I use Nexus 4, as the device has right size balance and is a customization paradise.
    I'm really not a fan of tablet form factors and there's no device here.

    We have six here in our temporary home in CA: one computer, one iPad and one iPhone each. Husband runs 2009 27" iMac and is shortly going to replace his original iPad with a new one; I have 2013 non-retina MBP with 27" Thunderbolt display and the iPad 2 I inherited from my father. We each carry iPhone 5ses.

    I don't understand the argument about hating Apple for making its users do things a certain way. True, I'm not too thrilled that every generation of hardware has fewer and fewer replaceable parts. I get that, and it was an issue when I quit buying my Macs and started renting them.

    But having to install updates and virus fixes every single morning? No, thank you.

    As a branding broad and webhead, I do want to do things my own way. But having to start by configuring a bunch of apps and utilities to work together if they haven't got mutually compatible APIs, to me, is counterproductive. The whole criticism of the ecosystem strikes me as a little like saying Picasso was a hack because he didn't make his own paintbrushes.

    None. While I think that the products work quite well, I don't support Apple's business models that attempt to create a closed universe where all the products are 'perfect as is, no one needs to add to, or to upgrade our product' nor do I support their sales model that pretty much demands that anything you want to play or run on an Apple device pay Apple for the privilege of doing so.

    OK, my household has
    15" MacBook Pro 2010 (mine)
    13" MacBook Pro 2011 (my son)
    21" iMac 2011 (my wife)
    5 iPad 2s 16GB (except my wife's was stolen, so 4)
    AppleTV 2 (occasionally jailbroken)
    2TB Time Capsule
    2 AirPort Extremes (I keep finding these at Goodwill)
    iPod 4g 20GB (2004)
    1st Gen iPod Shuffle (in a box somewhere)
    iPod Touch 3g 32GB (2009)
    iPod Nano 16GB (2010)
    Assorted Wireless Keyboards and Mice

    Later this summer (crazy money coming), will get
    13" MacBook Pro 2013 (daughter)
    iPad Air (my wife)
    2 Mac Minis (myself and media center)
    Wacom Cintiq Companion Hybrid 32G (I know, not Apple, but cool)

    The thing is, as we've moved across from PC/Windows to Apple/Mac/IOS, my job as tech support for the family has greatly lessened. Yes, it's a steeper initial step, but it has paid off big time over the last few years. Especially since all the major software and OS upgrades (iWork, iLife, OSX Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks) have been free.

    Personally -G4 400, G5 dual 1.8, 2008 15" MBP - needed Super Drive & mobo replaced (both under warranty), 2010 17" MBP, all 4 were used or are presently used as Final Cut Pro machines, 2 airport Extremes - both "flaky". Wife - 2013 13" MBP, iPhone 4.

    We've been the Radio Shack/Tandy 1000 & 2000, Sony VAIO, Toshiba (2) laptop route. Have had 2 custom built desktop PC's, the newer having had its hardware updated 3 times.

    Been the DOS, Win 3, 3.1. XP, WIN 7, WIN 8, MAC OS 7, 8, X up to 10.9.2 route. Prefer using XP & Snow Leopard to the others. Lotsa $$$ & time invested. Still not really satisfied hardware or software wise but if pushed would probably go MAC MBP & Snow Leopard with Parallels & WIN XP, in spite of Apple no longer providing updates to SL.

    IMHO, it's like a car - gets you from A to B. How you want to travel is your choice.

    Hi Folks

    I use a 27" iMac, and iPhone 4S, and a 16Gb iPad, all for work and play. For pure fun I also have an Apple TV - makes watching those YouTube vidz and the like so much easier on a big screen TV, plus I can port everything else to the TV via AirPlay, which is great fun ('er indoors still doesn't realise how I get those games from the iPad to the TV!).

  52. Shawn Rosvold

    None. I am forced to use Apple products at work, which gives me a good opportunity to see whether my smug, condescending attitude to anyone using iAnything is justified. Are Apple products highly limited, over priced, over hyped, and inferior to just about everything else out there? Yes.

    iPod, iPhone, Ipad, and MacBook Pro with Retina. I was a Windows network administrator and computer support technician. I still have two Windows machines but grew weary over the time I spent on troubleshooting. Never thought I would switch but I did not like Win 7 over XP and Win 8 is a virus. Started with an Iphone then Ipad and now MacBook Pro with Retina display. I am very happy because I don't have near the problems I used to have. It is not even close.

    I have a couple ipods, bought two ipads, one powerbook and I won't buy another apple product because of their proprietary crap! I'm tired of having to buy all knew when they decide they need more money for their investors! Will stick to android, debian and the remnants of windows. Apple will go the way of Sony, good ideas but corporate bean counters (like the first apple corps) will kill off the R&D for profits! Can you see it coming?

    Zero and happy! I will never buy Apple! I remember my sister ipod because it would randomly freeze up. You had to use bloated Itunes to put music on it. When you plugin it in and load up itunes, it would format the whole ipod automatically, resulting in losing everything.

    I was at 4, but I'm down to 1. Switched to Android for my phone and tablets a few months ago. It has been a huge win! Still have my MacBook pro which has been very problematic. Most folks who have an early 2010 model know what I'm talking about.

    Going forward I want to be hardware independent as much as possible. Its hard to watch so many friends using 4 inch phones with Crappy keyboard still. Trapped in an ecosystem and probably don't know better. I want to be able to switch when a platform gets ahead of one or the other.

    I've got 2 Gen1 iPads...both used to RDP into Win7 boxes.
    I get an "ultraportable" with great battery life and excellent build quality - without having to play in Apple's walled garden.
    Things get a little more insane as I use MoonReader (my choice of Android bookreader apps) via Bluestacks via RDP on an iPad (Moonreader syncs bookmarks etc with my phone via Dropbox and isn't available AFAIK for any other platform - this solution works well).
    I may purchase more up-to-date devices when the batteries in the iPads die, but for the present, this works for me.

    In my house, there's only 3 Apple products. The first is my 4GB Silver Ipod Mini (which is gathering dust, but I brush it off whenever I feel like listening to the Harry Potter audiobooks), followed by my 3GS, and lastly, the Ipad 3, which my mom currently addicted (she uses it to watch Vietnamese dub dramas.)

    I might be upgrading my 3GS later this year if I have enough money.

      March 24, 2014 at 8:04 pm

      Here here! I second that emotion. I also don't like their "walled garden" environment or their "do it our way not yours" approach to iOS. Linux all the way.

    • ex2bot
      March 26, 2014 at 7:15 pm

      They usually are overpriced, but they have higher resale value. Check used prices compared to Windows machines. I think you'll be surprised. I prefer them for their superior build quality. Seriously, though, it wouldn't hurt them to shave $100-$300 off the Macs and $50 off the iPads.

      One more point: I have mixed feelings about the walled garden thing on Apple mobile. They need to be at least somewhat less locked down to increase functionality. On the other hand, the iPad software quality and selection is much, much better overall than competing tablets. Not due to walled garden but due to popularity.

    Just one Apple product in our home. An Ipod Nano 4th Gen which I bought used a few months ago as my new car has an Ipod connection. I use it all the time and despite being an Apple "refusenik" I really like it. Would I have an iPad - yes if they weren't so darn expensive!!

    • ex2bot
      March 26, 2014 at 7:07 pm

      I have had good experiences with refurbished Apple products *from Apple's online store* for less. (Search for "iPad refurbished".) I bought a refurb'd MacBook Pro 2006 and 13" MBP 2009. Much cheaper and no aesthetic or functional difference that I could see. Same warranty, too.

  76. likefunbutnot
    March 23, 2014 at 5:49 pm

    My employer provided me with a 17" Macbook Pro. The display failed twice while it was under warranty, in spite of the fact that it hasn't ever moved off my desk other than times I've shipped it back to Apple. It hasn't even been turned on in probably two years.

    Technically, I also own an Airport something-or-other, but that's just sitting out in my car until I find someone who needs a new Access Point. The person who originally bought it discovered that she could not configure it from her non-Apple tablet, so I wound up with it.

    I've been given a couple iPads. I give them away. My employer also provided me with one, which I can't give away, but it's never been removed from its packaging.

    I've never had a positive interaction with Apple's support in 20 years of IT work. I have no interest in using Apple products or entirely re-arranging the way I use a computer to conform to Apple's expectations. I don't mind Macs as such, but I find the degree to which iOS requires special accommodation to be both onerous and odious.

    Currently I have a Mini 2011, but I don't regret not waiting for the 2012 because the 6630m is still a little better than the Intel-based on-the-die chipsets of 2012+, which works fine for my retro-emulation purposes.
    And along with it I sport an Apple wireless keyboard (best keyboard I've had in years), an Apple Magic Mouse and a Magic Trackpad.

    I also have an iPhone 4s 64 GB, which I intend to exchange for a 6s 128 GB, or maybe a 7 (but that'd be a long stretch and likely iOS 9 or 10 won't have support for the now ancient 4s). I don't feel the compelling need to switch (although the lightweight and larger screen is a plus on recent models) since it works fine for my needs.

    I have an iPad 3 64 GB which I regret having bought so soon, since Apple screwed us over and released the iPad 4 months later.

    That's pretty much it, but there is also an iPad Mini 16 GB at home, but not mine.
    I previously had an iPod Touch 4th Gen, but sold it as it was just gathering dust.
    And AppleTV 3rd Gen was the worst purchase of my life, totally useless for me, as I don't do iTunes (only for synching music to the iPhone and that's it) and Plex/XBMC apps will never reach it, and the promise of the Jailbreak became a lost prophecy every day that passed by.

    So I can say I'm an all-apple guy, and that all started when I built a "Hackintosh" in 2011, but was sick of having to maintain it (hunting kexts in the dark caves of the internet for sound and video every time I updated Snow Leopard).
    Which is weird, since I'm what you could say a power user and loved to thinker in college with stuff like building my own Linux distro and the like... but nowadays I enjoy spending my time somewhere else and I just want things "to work", and that's what Apple has allowed me to, even if their products are over-expensive regarding their counterparts.
    However I see Apple is stale, no longer innovating, hopefully they get back on track soon....

    In the sense of upgrading, I think I'm in the same boat as "Michail D"... I only upgrade nowadays when it's dead or just plain too old to function the way I expect it to. I see no reason to upgrade my phone every year and the like (plus it's a waste of money, no matter if you say you can sell it and make a profit and then buy the new one and blah blah... in the end it's cash flow that I need).

    My household bleeds 7 colors (y'know the original Apple Logo). The Mac Pro tower I'm using now is over 10 yrs old and will be replaced soon, because I'm getting to the point where developers are no longer developing for os X 7.5. Sure it may be "pricey" on the surface, but for sheer just working well, I've been very well served. I'm no stranger to Windows. Hell, I built my own pentium box years ago. It's just that for my work (graphic design and comic creation), all my apple products (including the sweet iPad Air I was given as a reward), lets me do stuff with very little wrestling with the OS or techy crap.

    My 5 yr old iPod touch still works well, my wife is happy with her first gen iPad (so much that her 12 yr old iMac has been unused for quite some time). Our apple TV is an integral part of our home entertainment, especially with how easy the AirPort WiFi router was to set up and use.

    "It Just Works" -- isn't just an ad slogan, it's a way of life.

    One MacBook Pro 13" Retina, one iPad 4, one iPhpne 5 and one Apple TV 3. I didn't count accessories, such as adapters, travel kits, SuperDrive, etc.
    I'm generaly the type of guy that changes electronics, computers and gadgets only when they're dead, or they really can't cover my needs.
    After many years of using Window, when the time came to replace my last laptop, I decided to go for a MacBook Pro, because of its excellent hardware and software quality.
    So, when I decided to replace my old Android phone, having compatibility and ease of use as the main criteria, iPhone was the best option and naturally iPad (which I need for reading pdfs and epubs my MSc studies) won the battle over Kindle or Android tablets.
    Apple TV was, together with my first TV (a Toshiba one), just a Christmas gift!!!

    My very first 'personal computer' was an Apple III - back in 1986. Then, it was Windows all the way. I did purchase a first-gen iPad in 2010 -- very nice in and of itself -- but wouldn't play nice when syncing via iTunes to my Windows files! Very annoying -- sold the darn thing.

    So how many Apple products do I own or use currently? Long answer short" ZERO.

    I was having problems with my Windows 7 Pro one evening when my son just happened to call me. "When you going to get a good Computer Dad". It wasn't the first time that I heard that coming from my Son. It was a few hours later that I went on the Apple web site. I saw the lap top for the new Mac, that I thought looked very nice. I saw at the site that they had a bank offering 0% if it was paid off in a year. Being retired/disabled, I have to watch my money. But the offer looked good. So I applied, I received an email back, it will take any where from 24 to 48 hours to get a reply. While reading about the laptop, I received another email two minites later informing me that I couls spend $6000.00 with 0% for year.
    I made an appointment at the closest Apple store for the following day. I was there about 10 minutes early and was walking in the store when I saw the new Apple Desktop. I had no idea what it was. I asked my salesman and he told me. He said that is the New 27" MAC Desktop. I spent a few minutes looking at it and I must say that I liked it. About an hour or so they placed mine in my car for me. For my first Apple product, I guess I spent too much. But I love it. I'm still trying to learn it.

    Now I have the IMAC 27" Desk Top, IPAD 2, 4S, and now the 5S.

    The only Apple products I have are keyboards, since they fit my typing style and they don't have an Apple logo (juts hidden under) or Microsoft logo. I once had an iPod Shuffle very first gneration that I got free when joining a bank. I tossed it few weeks later. I run Linux full time at home.
