What Operating System do you run MySQL on in Production

This Friday we’ll have two polls instead of one to learn about Operating system we’re using to run MySQL. First Poll is about production use and second is about development. I know many developers would run MySQL on Linux in Production but use Windows or MacOS X for development. Please select operating system which actually runs your MySQL Server not the base operating system. if you’re running Virtualized Linux on your Windows please select Linux as OS used for development. So

    These polls are boring already. I wish you had something more interesting to say.

    I guess I’m in the minority. I use it for a DB that stores old Outlook mail that used to be in .pst format, & then I also import new mail from Apple Mail (coming from Exchange.) This is on Apple OSX Lion 10.7.

    I guess running MySQL on AIX would also qualify for the missing “Other” category 😉

    I think that would be good idea divide linux category in most used distributions…
