Not too many will argue that 7 is a rock solid tower PC OS. No doubt about it. Some even run it on a tablet. But, MS wouldn’t have survived creating another one. The tower PC market has flat lined and not too shortly in the future will decline all the more why with the craze of touch mobile devices. 7 tablets weren't a big seller either.
MS pulled a real boner releasing 8 like they did. Sure started a whole lot of bad press and soar feelings toward it. I think in time when the dust clears 8.1 will prove itself to be a good seller.
Bogdan Popa is actually a great writer. He’s a master at deception and a real twistappel in his writings even though he’s a big MS and Windows fan. I can just hear his boss tell him > “Write anything you’d like. Just don’t give MS an inch.”
Technically they’re different OS versions, but one must consider adding them together for a presentation such as this because they both represent the change of the new MS direction. To be considered like fraternal twins so to speak. Combined they would equal 10.91%, which would beat out Mac OS X. 10.91% is not the best, but not the worst either. Drastic change is always slow go.
Hmmmm. Doesn’t look good you dabblers in distros, eh?Linux is still missing from the stats, which means that, although so many people said that they are migrating from Windows XP to the open-source platform, its market share remains low.
What happened to the ¼ of 1% gain for January he boasted of in his last article to spread Softpedia’s FUD?
Despite Imminent Retirement, More Users Move to Windows XPWindows XP lost only a few users in February and now has a market share of 17.07 percent, which is just another indication that Microsoft’s ancient OS version won’t be dead by April.
Wonder how much XP will drop and 7/8.1 will increase in the next couple of months when the clock stops ticking for the old dino? Ultimately it really doesn’t matter. MS gains either way.
