    This is a WP forum, but I am wondering how many people are platform neutral or close to it?

    For me, I am currently using a Chinese OEM Android tablet (Pipo M6) as something to try and play with, a Nokia Lumia 920 as my daily driver, uses Windows at work and home. Have to admit as being a Nokia fanboy though, so when Nokia makes one of those tablets often touted, I will jump on it straight.

    Not an Apple fan at all since iPod days, so I am not exactly neutral. However, Jay from My Nokia Blog uses Macs and iPad, so wondering just how many people are platform neutral.

    I think you're confusing "platform neutral" with common sense and being open-minded. My phone is a Lumia (this week), my laptop is a Win7 machine and my desktop at home is a Mac. If and when Ubuntu comes to market, I'll probably be all over it since I miss webOS so much and it's probably the closest to it. I think "fanboyism" is insane because it limits your choices. I'm always evangelizing the Prophet Marley's teachings - "Free your mind and the rest will follow".

    I don't own a tablet, and I'm currently using only one smartphone. However, I run both Windows 8 and Linux Mint 15 on my PCs.

    That might surprise people who know my critical view regarding the ecosystem, but personally I'm really only using Windows Phone and Windows.

    However this might change in the near future, I'm thinking about buying a Macbook Pro for professional reasons, and a tablet with either Android or iOS.

    Hmmm...

    Phone - L920 (WP8)
    Tablet - Pipo M6 3G (Android)
    Netbook - Win7
    Desktop - Win7
    Games Console - PS3 (and going PS4)

    Phone - N/A yet, used to have an HTC Aria (Android 4.0-4.2), Palm Treo Pro (WM 6.1-.5), Palm Pre 2 (webOS 2.x), and some non-phones. (Lots of Palm PDAs, iPod touch 4 (iOS 4-6))
    Tablet - none - thinking of going RT tablet + desktop
    Laptop - Windows 8 (probably going to downgrade to 7 for compatibility reasons) / Ubuntu 13.04
    Desktop - none as of now
    no recent game consoles
    And i'm awkwardly using both Google and Outlook.com

    Phone - Lumia 521 WP8
    PDA - Palm TX PalmOS 5.4.9
    Tablet - Lenovo X61 Windows 7 Ultimate
    Laptop - Gateway 17" Windows 7 Pro
    Desktop - Mac OSX 10.6.8
    Work - Lenovo Laptop Windows 8
    Gaming System - What's that?
    Gmail, Google Cal & Contacts through EAS

    Kind of a weird mix but obviously Windows-centric. May go webOS again on phone as well as a TouchPad to replace the PDA only because the ability to send & receive calls and texts through the TP. Have no room in my busy days for a convoluted Android mess or iDevices that don't play nice with other equipment.

    Okay I don't feel so bad now. We use iOS (6), Android (3), Win8 (1), Win7 (2), Win2000 (1), Mac-2 (book and desk), Ubuntu (1) and Linux (2). As soon as the Ativ S Neo is out, I will add 2 WP8 devices. The wife and I are both engineers, so we love our tech.

    Phone: Lumia 810 (daily driver), HTC 8X (repair project)
    Tablet: HP Touchpad, dual boot webOS and Jellybean 4.1.2
    Project phone: Galaxy Nexus
    PC: Windows XP
    Doorstop: iPod Touch (this is for laughs, as I don't own an iDevice anymore)

    I like trying stuff but my heartthrobs are webOS and WP, with Android a distant 3rd place.

    Not sure if you'd say I'm platform neutral, or just an addict. I currently use a Lumia 1020 as my daily driver. I also have and use:

    Galaxy Note 2
    iPad (3rd Gen)
    iPod Classic (car MP3 player)
    Surface RT (overpriced Kindle reader)
    Surface Pro (daily PC for work, with monitor and keyboard for office use)
    15" Retina Macbook Pro (bootcamped for gaming)
    Homebuilt Win7 PC (Home Beast)

    Those are just the ones that still see daily/weekly use. I won't get into my drawer full of old tech. Yeah...I'm not well.

    Mobile = L920
    Tablet = Nexus 7
    Music = Nano 5th Gen

    Not a fan boy of any but I definitely do prefer Microsoft/Apple products over Android (tablet was a gift, originally wanted a Surface Pro but too expensive).

    While android may be better than it once was (at this point in time I could use a flagship android device, I just don't want to), I also prefer Microsoft/Apple products.

    My setup:

    Mobile - Lumia 920/iPhone 4S (mostly use the 920)
    Laptop - Mac (though my backup computer is a Windows laptop)
    Tablet - Surface RT (sold my iPad to get this)
    I also keep an iPod touch in the car for music/podcasts.

    There's a 12 step program for what ails you. But if you're like me, you'll trip and fall on the first one.

    Pretty much all Microsoft products here, but that is open to change. It is all about what works. I am happy to try new things. Loved WebOS, and HP would have had a very loyal user had it not decided to become jello and not see things through. But, MS has me for now. If I couldn't meet my needs and most my wants, I would move on. Right now, I am happy.

    My lineup looks like this:

    Primary phone - Nexus 4
    2nd line - switch between iPhone 5 & Lumia 521 as the mood strikes
    Wife's phone - Galaxy Nexus
    2 Tablets
    • Nexus 7 (2012)
    • HP Touchpad dual booting WebOS and Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2
    2 Laptops - both Windows 8
    Desktop - Windows Home Server 2011

    So the final tally is:

    Microsoft - 4
    Android - 4
    WebOS - 1
    Apple - 1

    That's counting the HP Touchpad as 1 each Android & WebOS. I used it in WebOS some at first, but lately the Android ROM is very, very good after a long time in development. Everything works and it is pretty much bug free. I almost never use WebOS anymore.
    Current lineup: Nexus 5 (primary device), Lumia 920, Moto G, and Lumia 520. There, I did it; I updated my signature!
