About 100 people responded to the survey.

About 70% of respondents run CCL on Linux.  The Mac is used by by about 60% of respondents, with Windows coming in third, being used by about 35%.  FreeBSD and the Solaris-ish systems bring up the rear.

Nearly all respondents use x86-64.  About 25% use ARM, and about 10% use 32-bit x86.  One user mentioned that he still uses CCL on a PowerPC Mac running OS X 10.5.7, so he certainly earns the prize for retro-ness.

Thanks for your responses.  I'm not really very surprised, except perhaps by how many people are using Windows.
