Default Minecraft statistics

This week, Mojang released the results it had gathered from the Minecraft servers and clients that let it snoop at how they played Minecraft.

[can't find the original announcements]

This is a LOT of data, but some have put it together in a readable format. For instance:

Mcstats-analysis by DanielRapp

Surprisingly most clients don't use mods and most people don't play it in full screen. However, those that do, play longer.

Same here, usually because I listen to music if I'm not mumbling. Wich is often on my crappy connection.
MC is one of few games I can play and listen to tunes and one of the things I love about it.
In-game music on zero and sound FX up to full, has been since I first installed.
Can't do fullscreen otherwise I can't switch tracks or change from speakers to headset and vice/versa as easily.

If you play full screen, you can't see the time. That's why they probably play longer.

This is most likely.

I assumed most people play windowed since it's the default when you install the game.

I play full screen. I often discover that it's suddenly well past midnight. There may be some correlation here.

I've actually been forced to put a shutdown event in my computers, so at a specific time they start beeping, then 5 minutes later it's hard shutdown. Efficient way of not staying up for too long
