How Many Open-Source Programs Do You Use Weekly? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week we wanted to know if readers thought digital pirates purchased more goods than non-pirates. Overwhelmingly, most voters believe the pirates do spend the most money.

Out of 319 votes, opinions were divided as follows: 59% think digital pirates purchase more products than non-pirates; 23% say that the pirates they know don’t pay for anything; while 19% say they aren’t sure.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

Clearly, the gut feel around here is that pirates are actually making the most money for the entertainment industry.

This week’s poll question is: How Many Open-Source Programs Do You Use Weekly?

We know MakeUseOf readers love freeware and open-source software. So, we want to know how much you really use? Each week, you probably cycle through most of your favorites, so how many are there?

So what are the top open-source applications you use? Are there some things you just can’t use an open-source alternative for? Let us know in the comments!
