    Sure, but the "game table" functionality that's part of DDi seems to imply that players would use it over the internet. That'd be true regardless of the platform (browser-based, native code, Windows, Linux, Mac, etc.)

    Not to shabby. Linux is where I expected it to be but the Mac has more of a share than I expected. Maybe this is just because as a Windows user I've been taught the Mac is inferior? Or maybe it is the fact Mac's have always seemed too cute to be taken seriously? They really are adorable

    And certian but unknown nunber of those are not. For the sake of some sites some Linux/Mac users spoof their browers and OS to fool the websites. That number will not be high, but it will be there.

    The board averages sound about right.

    Why in the world would they need to spoof their OS here?

    Here you woulden't, but if you have the browser spoofing it is easier to leave it spoofing for everyone than to change it back and forth.

    I have done this myself, set Firefox to report itself as IE6 and Linux ot call itself windows. I haven't done it in a while, but my bank finally got smart and stopped requiering IE.

    Browser spoofing in general could be useful for quite a number of applications. A great deal of people on the internet are security freaks or wish to remain anonymous. Many sign up for services or buy software which help maintain your anonymity on the net. Along with using proxies and "cover your tracks, spoofing what information websites do get from you is a very common tactic.
