Does anyone know the breakdown of users who run Mathematica on (1) Windows, (2) Mac, (3) Linux? I recall coming across info on users by field of interest, but never by platform they use Mathematica on. Why am I interested in this? --- From what I can tell, Mathematica uses the PortAudio sound API as a way to simplify the development of sound capabilities across platforms, and I was wondering about ways to either improve capabilities via PortAudio or perhaps programming links to an alternate cross-platform API. (The main alternative I've come across is the Bass Sound API, which is free for individuals to use non- commercially and priced very modestly, IMO, for multi-platform commercial projects.) -RG
