Microsoft Windows still Dominant as ever


Here is an interesting graph showing the top 5 Operating System market shares.

Microsoft Windows still has huge dominance and whilst Apple has received so much hype about their Laptops/Macbooks, this hasn’t actually caused a considerable increase in their market share.

Windows 7 is growing very strongly as users replace Windows XP and Vista operating systems.

Top 5 Operating Systems - Jul 08 to Oct 10

Top 5 Operating Systems - Jul 08 to Oct 10

Actual stats as of today are:

Windows XP – 53.13%
Windows 7 – 22.46%
WinVista – 16.59%
MacOSX – 6.05%
Linux – 0.77%

So Microsoft has a total of 92.18% of the Operating System market.

Personally i am a big Microsoft fan, but there is no bias in this article – the figures do the talking.

It will be interesting to follow the Operating System market shares and I will post subsequent articles as more unfolds.
