What I am is immaterial to the poll, as I didn't participate in it. Your assertion was that the opinions of those taking the poll are skewed by the mere fact that they installed Windows 8. Are you claiming that only 83% of those that took the poll have skewed opinions and the other 17% don't?

Do me a favour, ask 10 non-developers or IT professionals tomorrow if they have installed  Windows 8 (or even used it) and tell me if that is 17% or 83%
