Which machine do you tend to use c4d on the most?
No fighting, no slagging off, I just want to get some simple numbers.

Actually, I use both Windows and Mac OS for plugin compilation, but mostly do the initial development on Mac OS.
Also, most of the client work I do is on Mac OS.

The new MacPro completed the end of Apple in the highend segment of computers.

In a time where the performance of a modern day PC workstation can outperform a MacPro by almost 2-1, I'd be surprised if the results were 50-50. I know a fair few people who reluctantly came over to PC, only to be quite happy once they discovered that Win7 was an nice OS and that carefully chosen PC hardware proved every bit as stable as their trusted MacPro's.
This latest MacPro offering is a slight kick in the balls for those who've waited for years for a new workstation, for those who take their computing experience seriously. If I was a Mac user, faithful as they all are, I'd have been very offended by that tin can they're trying to wow you with.

I'm very interested in the results. Some people think that Maxon is making up the 50/50 divide, but as of now there is no indicator that this has changed in over 10 years.

Valid points--consider it old dog syndrome. (Mac here since 1988)
A large portion of the c4d user base consists of broadcast motion graphics freelancers*, and from my understanding that is mostly a mac based crowd...unless this has changed.
*EDIT--not that I have any inside info on numbers--its just based on observations of communities like mograph.net, vimeo, twitter and those I have worked with/for.

I can easily say that 95% of the presenters that we get in for Siggraph and NAB are OSX.
It's all about that glossy hardware and sleek OS I guess, cause they obviously didn't care about the power advantage that a well built PC has over the Apples.
(Some said that they like that the Macs just work out of the box...which is true to a certain extent....as I know that I had to spend more time managing my OS / drivers.)
But yeah...I think 50/50 is still a pretty good estimate...although I think for "visible" users the ratio is 20/80 with way more mac users.
