     1The results of the first OpenSceneGraph poll are in! The poll question was  
     2"How do you get your OpenSceneGraph binaries?". A total of 178 votes were cast by 
     3154 unique voters (judging from IP addresses). 
     5Almost two-thirds of the votes were cast for the Windows options, 61%, versus 39% for the  
     6Linux ones. The majority of voters casting two or more votes indicated they compiled from source. 
     8Here are the results grouped by platform: 
     11||I compile OSG from source, but use precompiled dependencies||33.7%||60|| 
     12||I use Mike Weiblen's precompiled binaries for both OSG and its dependencies||18.0%||32|| 
     13||I compile OSG and its dependencies from source (choose to)||7.9%||14|| 
     14||I compile OSG and its dependencies from source (no precompiled package for my compiler)||0.6%||1|| 
     18||I compile OSG from source myself||29.2%||52|| 
     19||I use packages provided by my distribution||5.1%||9|| 
     21||Where is the precompiled package for Linux?||0.6%||1|| 
     23A selection of remarks provided with the votes: 
     24 * "We compiled our deps to avoid version mismatch issues and to have full control over the process." 
     25 * "For VS2005 I've made a tutorial to compile OSG from source using precompiled dependencies (french):" 
     26 * "I use the pre-built packages when possible, but also build them myself.  It is easier to distribute my code and to tell other users to use the pre-built installer than to have them build OSG themselves." 
     27 * "I would use Gentoo's system, but it is stuck at 1.2" 
     28 * "Thanks so much for OSG!" 
     29 * "I compile OSG from source to use debug builds and have debug information. Still need to step into osg code to understand..." 
     30 * "Windows: compile OSG from source, use precompiled dependencies, Linux: compile OSG from source, use dependencies from distro's package manager." 
     31 * "I compile & link the dependencies statically into my osg application." 
     32 * "I wouldnt if the precompiled ones would work for me" 
     33 * "well i had lots of trouble with the precompiled binaries... so i decided to compile everything by myself" 
     34 * "It's possible to compile on !VxWorks?" 
     35 * Multiple voters were curious where the MacOS vote option was. As far as I (Paul Melis) could tell, there weren't any provided through the OpenSceneGraph website ("OSX Pending"), and I also couldn't find any using Google. So if there ''is'' a standard OSG binary distribution for the Mac then the OSG download page should clearly be updated...
