"On its Developer Network, Microsoft occasionally calls on open source developers to participate in a small survey on the topic of 'hosting platform and version control systems according to preferred development platform'. The results of the latest survey have now been published on CodePlex.

"More than 1,000 participants who develop on Windows, Mac OS X or Linux took part in the survey. In terms of code hosting, the survey found that the preferred systems were CodePlex (for Windows users) and GitHub (for Mac and Linux users). However, it should be noted that the current results only show a marginal difference of 0.1 per cent between GitHub and CodePlex for the Windows platform."
