Statistically, it is quite credible that over 90% of the desktop public uses Windows and IE (based on random sampling). However, if one or more of the following apply: - you can name a platform other than Windows or Mac - you've ever written a program or script with a computer language - you've heard of REBOL - you meet certain demographic patterns (i.e., live outside the US, are over the age of 25, are male, etc.) Then you're probably outside of that 90% demographic. Not only that, but the first degree of people that you work with, network among or who share your interests also stand a high chance of not falling within that 90%. Likewise one could also predict that if your record collection contains a recording by Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, George Clinton or Sun Ra, then you've probably never purchased a Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson or Kenny G record -- nor can you likely name the artists at the top of the pop charts!
