The latest OS market share numbers


Quote:
Just before the results of back-to-school sales and way before the holiday season, Windows 8 appears to have made a significant jump in market share. At the same time, Windows 7′s hold remains strong, and it looks to stay the most popular operating system version for a long time.

The latest market share data from Net Applications shows that August 2013 was a massive one for Windows 8, which gained 2.01 percentage points (from 5.40 percent to 7.41 percent) while Windows 7 recovered 1.14 percentage points (from 44.49 percent to 45.63 percent).

Between July and August, Windows lost 0.37 percentage points (from 91.56 percent to 91.19 percent). This loss was OS X’s and Linux’s gain: up 0.09 percentage points (to 7.28 percent) and 0.27 percentage points (to 1.52 percent), respectively.

Net Applications uses data captured from 160 million unique visitors each month by monitoring some 40,000 websites for its clients. StatCounter is another popular service for watching market share moves; the company looks at 15 billion page views. To us, it makes more sense to keep track of users than of page views, but if you prefer the latter, the corresponding data is available here (Windows 8 is at 7.04 percent, and it didn’t see a massive jump from July).
91.19% Windows
7.28% Mac
1.52% Linux
