    I saw this question on another web and thought it interesting for WPCentral. Mine is hovering near 90 percent

    I'd say based on how much I use my Microsoft products as opposed to others... About 95%. I go to my android tablet for things that my Surface Pro 2 doesn't have and use google when Bing doesn't give me the right search.

    I know where you are going but that is a much harder question to answer than it appears. We use lots of computers and computer systems everyday that we take for granted.

    Based on where you are heading with the question I am around 98%.

    If you're talking about products I own and use on a daily basis, including hardware and software, I'm in the very high 90%s. My home computer is a Toshiba laptop running Windows 8.1 and Office 2010, although I do have some non-Microsoft apps on it. I have a Surface RT that I use daily which is all Microsoft, and my smartphone is a Lumia 920 (although I do own an iPhone 4S because I support iPhone at work and I like to keep abreast of iOS updates). I also have an Xbox 360 with a couple of games that I don't ever play, heh, and my car is a Ford which has Microsoft Sync.

    At work my desktop is an HP something-or-other running Windows 8.1 and Office 2010. The only non-Microsoft apps I have on this machine are Komodo Edit and Private Shell. We're pretty much an all-Microsoft shop with Windows Servers, Exchange Server 2010 and SharePoint 2010, although I do run a Linux server for our website (thus... Private Shell for SSH access).

    Pretty much I think that puts me in the 98-99% range.

    Interesting question! Because I work in IT I spend most of my time on a PC. I installed Ubuntu on one of my laptops at home (dual boot) but I don't use it much. My mobile devices are mostly Android. I would say for me it would be around 90% Microsoft.

    EDIT: 90% is the amount of time I spend using a Microsoft product. If we're counting devices I use, then it would be 57% (rounded, 4/7).

    Microsoft:
    3 - PC's
    1 - WP

    Other:
    1 - Android phone
    2 - Android tablets

    Right now I'm 100%. Windows phone, surface pro, Lenovo laptop running win8, and my desktop workstation on win7. Quite a change from a few years ago when I only had a ms workstation only because I needed it to run my business software. I didn't like where MS was and they were ******* me off, and was mostly in the Linux world.

    But nowadays, MS has the most forward thinking designs in the industry, its too hard to ignore them imo. Apple and google seem to be stuck in the icon/desktop world, which is great for a mouse but lagging behind for a touch based system. We'll see where the industry lies in another 5 years and see where I'll be. I don't have loyalties anywhere, I'll use whatever works best for ME right in the present.

    In terms of software/ operating systems, 100%. Wp7.8, Lenovo work laptop running windows 7, home desktop running windows 8. I sold my Surface, hoping to add a Nokia Lumia 929 and 2520 to the mix by the end of the month :)

    100% personal usage, though a site I write for uses the data mining corps software so I have to use that, however it will be quarantined to an old Windows 7 laptop and used occasionally so I don't really count it. :)

    I must be around 98% I'd say. I have a Windows 7 Desktop PC, a Windows 8.1 laptop and a Lumia 920 phone. I do have an old HP laptop that I installed Ubuntu on but very rarely take it out the cupboard. I also have a Raspberry Pi, but again don't use it too much, other than messing about with really. Next purchase will probably be a smallish Windows 8.1 tablet like the Dell Venue 8 Pro.

    It used to be at 100% now using an Android device because T-Mobile had no flagship Windows phones I would say I am 100% invested into MS products. I have a iMac, surface pro, a Nokia Lumia 920 that I just use for Pandora via wifi. A Windows 7 laptop I never use and of course at work we use Windows server. I can't put a % on it as I use all different products.

    I use office 365, skydive, all features of Outlook. Com (calendar, email, and contacts)

    I'd say probably about 75%.

    I use Windows 8.1, Office 365, Windows Phone; however, I also use Linux. I don't use IE as a desktop browser at all; Firefox is my browser in Windows and in Linux. I also use Thunderbird and LibreOffice in Linux.

    I don't use Zune or Xbox Music. I buy my music from Amazon.com and use various streaming apps.

    I don't use Xbox Video for movies; Netflix is my movie app.

    I'd have to be around 98%. The only times I'm not using a Windows Pc, Phone, or Tablet I'm using my work issued Blackberry.

    well for me it would be 100 percent because since im at school I like things to be synced across my devices and Microsoft seems to cover that for me

    In terms of devices: Retina MBP, Nexus 4 primary, iPod Touch 4G for music, Kindle for reading and Win8 gaming desktop. So that's 20%.

    With actual time spent? MS, more than 40% of my time working is spent with Excel and a large part of my leisure time gaming on Windows.

    A lot more than most people will believe. If I post anything positive about another MOBILE platform, or focus a real lacking of wp's abilities, I'm labeled zee enemy.... But I use and enjoy a lot of Microsoft products daily:

    Windows xp disk images (fantastically fast and uncluttered)
    A few GB of server space which is surprisingly unobtrusive
    Some old photo stitching tools that are fantastic
    Some Bluetooth keyboard and mice
    A few (excellent!)GB of their mapping services a week.
    A few GB of their software services a week
    And then there are the required office products away from home that are annoyingly cumbersome

    But the things I use most are dead technologies. They will not be updated, or upgraded, and when they fail, will be replaced with similar equipment out of personal preference, or not replaced at all. The current tend of over complicating and limiting user source actions does not appeal to me.
