Operating systems subreddits and their choice of words
Operating systems are at the base of every computing experience, and sometimes one can get angry if they make problems. Let’s see if this dependence is visible in the words users from different OS communities choose to express their thoughts.
Hardware and Errors
Linux users talk most about hardware and osx users most about error related topics.
/r/Windows however is the one using the most swear words.
Linux users are the ones expressing their happiness the most, while windows users seem to not be so happy.
Windows users talk most about money.
Also fitting into the stereotypes are the frequencies of the words ‘server’ and ‘game’. Linux dominates the server category, while /r/windows (but not that distinct) talks most about games.
Finally we look at how often the communities mention each others systems.

/r/Linux talks very much about windows. Whereas the other way around occurs not so often.
That’s it. If you want to you can download the raw data all these diagrams are based on.
