This is a WP forum, but I am wondering how many people are platform neutral or close to it?
For me, I am currently using a Chinese OEM Android tablet (Pipo M6) as something to try and play with, a Nokia Lumia 920 as my daily driver, uses Windows at work and home. Have to admit as being a Nokia fanboy though, so when Nokia makes one of those tablets often touted, I will jump on it straight.
Not an Apple fan at all since iPod days, so I am not exactly neutral. However, Jay from My Nokia Blog uses Macs and iPad, so wondering just how many people are platform neutral.

That might surprise people who know my critical view regarding the ecosystem, but personally I'm really only using Windows Phone and Windows.
However this might change in the near future, I'm thinking about buying a Macbook Pro for professional reasons, and a tablet with either Android or iOS.

Phone - N/A yet, used to have an HTC Aria (Android 4.0-4.2), Palm Treo Pro (WM 6.1-.5), Palm Pre 2 (webOS 2.x), and some non-phones. (Lots of Palm PDAs, iPod touch 4 (iOS 4-6))
Tablet - none - thinking of going RT tablet + desktop
Laptop - Windows 8 (probably going to downgrade to 7 for compatibility reasons) / Ubuntu 13.04
Desktop - none as of now
no recent game consoles
And i'm awkwardly using both Google and Outlook.com

Phone - Lumia 521 WP8
PDA - Palm TX PalmOS 5.4.9
Tablet - Lenovo X61 Windows 7 Ultimate
Laptop - Gateway 17" Windows 7 Pro
Desktop - Mac OSX 10.6.8
Work - Lenovo Laptop Windows 8
Gaming System - What's that?
Gmail, Google Cal & Contacts through EAS
Kind of a weird mix but obviously Windows-centric. May go webOS again on phone as well as a TouchPad to replace the PDA only because the ability to send & receive calls and texts through the TP. Have no room in my busy days for a convoluted Android mess or iDevices that don't play nice with other equipment.

Okay I don't feel so bad now. We use iOS (6), Android (3), Win8 (1), Win7 (2), Win2000 (1), Mac-2 (book and desk), Ubuntu (1) and Linux (2). As soon as the Ativ S Neo is out, I will add 2 WP8 devices. The wife and I are both engineers, so we love our tech.

Not sure if you'd say I'm platform neutral, or just an addict. I currently use a Lumia 1020 as my daily driver. I also have and use:
Galaxy Note 2
iPad (3rd Gen)
iPod Classic (car MP3 player)
Surface RT (overpriced Kindle reader)
Surface Pro (daily PC for work, with monitor and keyboard for office use)
15" Retina Macbook Pro (bootcamped for gaming)
Homebuilt Win7 PC (Home Beast)
Those are just the ones that still see daily/weekly use. I won't get into my drawer full of old tech. Yeah...I'm not well.

Pretty much all Microsoft products here, but that is open to change. It is all about what works. I am happy to try new things. Loved WebOS, and HP would have had a very loyal user had it not decided to become jello and not see things through. But, MS has me for now. If I couldn't meet my needs and most my wants, I would move on. Right now, I am happy."Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."- Ben Franklin.

My lineup looks like this:
Primary phone - Nexus 4
2nd line - switch between iPhone 5 & Lumia 521 as the mood strikes
Wife's phone - Galaxy Nexus
- Nexus 7 (2012)
- HP Touchpad dual booting WebOS and Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2
Desktop - Windows Home Server 2011
So the final tally is:
Microsoft - 4
Android - 4
WebOS - 1
Apple - 1
That's counting the HP Touchpad as 1 each Android & WebOS. I used it in WebOS some at first, but lately the Android ROM is very, very good after a long time in development. Everything works and it is pretty much bug free. I almost never use WebOS anymore.I have a Nexus 4, an iPhone 5, and a Lumia 520, and I like them all. Is something wrong with me? (I really should edit my signature sometime. I have only 1 of these 3 phones anymore, and even that one is mostly unused because it's been superseded by its big brother!)
