OS X.  Classic is still used by roughly half of the Mac audience, but
the numbers are falling fast since v10.2 (arguably the first version not
in beta <g>).

I stopped deploying to Classic -- I now only put a notice on my download
page that a Classic version is available on request, but so far none of
my apps have rec'd such a request.

By and large, those who still use Classic don't but much software.
