    What is it about Windows XP? (Home/Pro/Whatever)

    <big>This board is the busiest of the Windows boards, measured in posts-per-day, and has surpassed all other flavors of Windows in numbers of threads and posts. Why is this?</big>

    I am curious as to how the measured posts-per-day are undertaken, by whom, what attributes are considered and by what standards, to what degree which forums are uncovered and/or included and how reliable are these figures considered to be accurate?

    The board software generates certain statistics that I take at face value because... I don't do Perl!

    Even though this post is almost completely useless, it still counts. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
