No, that survey is specific to people using PHP, and the reason for the
skew is that PHP (used to) ship with built-in support for MySQL --- and
no other database.  I don't think you can draw any conclusions about
which OS they are running on.

Now that MySQL AB has put a stake through the heart of that connection
by GPL'ing their client libraries, we might start to get a little better
traction with PHP users...
