Well, only four or five kilofolk have actually voted so far.

One source of skew could be that former Apple II people are probably less likely
to be using a Windows-95-oriented web site than former Amiga people. Another
could be that Amiga is more recent, and many voters might be too young to have
had a real appreciation of Apple II.

FWIW, I considered voting for PET - the system I grew up with - but went for
Other instead (I really like the Tek 4050 series).
