I'm guessing a good mix. Why would it matter? The IDE is what you work with when you are developing.

All what you have listed plus Linux.
OS is irrelevant.

Not sure if this question is about development environments, or server environments?

What you say, if applied to Java, is largely true. But JEE is a different beast all together. The OS becomes quite important in JEE, since so many container managed services, plus the choice and behaviour of hardware depend on this. For example, an application we deployed in a container on Solaris (using the chipset Sun recommended) performed considerably worse than the same application deployed in a container running on 32 bit Windows 2000 server. This was application specific, but does demonstrate that blindly ignoring the OS is not a good idea.

When you reach the point of stressing your hardware and environment with a large production JEE application you find out the limitations of the OS. Its worth carefully performance testing on specific OSs because of this, and selecting accordingly.

The title says "programmers are using".I think that implies the person is asking about development environment.
I recently heard that Apple is discontinuing support for Flash and Java.
I have never used a Mac.So, I don't know about it.
Maybe the more experienced people like you can shed some light on it.

OpenJDK will produce a a JDK for Mac.
I know some problems have been reported with OpenJDK in Ubuntu, so I'm not sure I'd bet the farm on Mac right now.
And nobody's mentioned Solaris yet? For shame!
