For our general enrolment courses we tend to have about 50% of people saying
they expect to develop Perl under Windows. These use the Perl install on the
desktop. The rest ssh into our Linux machine. I can't say what kind of Unix
system the rest are used to using, as we merely differentiate between Windows
and Unix-like. Mac users bring their own machines ;) -- actually I suspect they
just pick Win or Linux as they desire.
We also don't ask what kind of end-machine they expect their code to run on.
But about half expect to _develop_ on some Microsoft operating system.
All the best,
