Stack Overflow Survey Finds More Developers Now Use Linux Than MacOS

Justin Garrison works at Amazon Web Services on the Kubernetes team (and was senior systems engineer on several animated films).

This week he spotted a new milestone for Linux in the 2022 StackOverflow developer survey:

[Among the developers surveyed] Linux as a primary operating system had been steadily climbing for the past 5 years. 2018 through 2021 saw steady growth with 23.2%, 25.6%, 26.6%, 25.3%, and finally in 2022 the usage was 40.23%. Linux usage was more than macOS in 2021, but only by a small margin. 2022 it is now 9% more than macOS.
Their final stats for “professional use” operating system:

  • Windows: 48.82%
  • Linux-based: 39.89%
  • MacOs: 32.97%

But Garrison’s blog post notes that that doesn’t include the million-plus people all the Linux-based cloud development environments (like GitHub Workspaces) — not to mention the 15% of WSL users on Windows and all the users of Docker (which uses a Linux VM).

“It’s safe to say more people use Linux as part of their development workflow than any other operating system.”
