Last Week in OSes Connecting to our Campus Network

Here is a list of OSes that connected to the campus wireless network last week, and the number of each of those OSes that connected. Dorm rooms don’t have wireless, only wired, so they don’t show up here, and lab machines are all wired, so they don’t show up here. Also, we don’t currently have guest access to the wireless network, so this is Carleton folks connecting.

Coming after the recent Chronicle of Higher Ed article on how Tablet Ownership Triples Among College Students¬†(apologies¬†for the pay wall), it’s very interesting to see iOS connections outnumber all Windows connections.
