Unfortunately, they didn't do a distro break down this year. But, the

didn't ask last year) and continuing a trend of share growth from the
years before that.
Another interesting one is "Platform", i.e. what you develope _for_:
Windows Desktop or Server 35.4%
and Most Loved ... Platforms
Linux is strong, at least as reflected by stack overflow.
Very little diversity:
Straight or heterosexual 93.2%
White or of European descent 74.2%
Many developers work on code outside of work. Over 80% of our
respondents say that they code as a hobby. Other interests or
responsibilities outside of software don't seem to reduce
developers' interest in coding as a hobby. Those who said they are
parents or have other caretaking responsibilities, those who
exercise daily, or those who spend the most time outside were
slightly more likely to code as a hobby than other groups.
