Windows 8 has often been described as a new disaster for Redmond-based software giant Microsoft, especially because it reportedly recorded sales that were similar to the ones posted by Vista after launch.
And still, things are getting significantly better for Microsoft and Windows 8. According to figures provided by market researcher StatCounter
, Windows 8 is currently the fourth most popular operating system
in the world and the third when it comes to Windows versions exclusively.
At this point, Windows 8 is installed on 5.75 percent of computers
worldwide, while Windows Vista has a market share of 5.44 percent.
