Launched around five months ago, Windows 10 now claims nearly 10% (9.96% to be exact) of the desktop OS market share, according to latest data from market research firm Net Applications. That's an increase of just under 1% from November, when the share was exact 9%.
Given the fact that the OS' market share rose 1.06% in the October-November period, the growth seems to have slowed down, although only a little. For those who aren't in the know, the rise in Windows 10's share has been around 1% for past few months now.
Windows 7 is still the most popular Windows OS with close to 56% market share. Among other older versions, Windows 8.1, 8, Vista, and XP now have a market share of 10.3%, 2.76%, 1.62%, and 10.93%, respectively. It's worth mentioning that all versions except Windows 10 saw a dip in their share last month.
Overall, Windows claimed over 91.3% share of the OS market, down 0.07% compared to November. Other operating systems such as Mac and Linux claimed 7.02% and 1.66% share, respectively.
I'm not getting off Win7 and XP and Microsoft can't make me. And Win10 seems really shady in terms of privacy.
Include Govt. offices of Pakistan too. Still fighting with it here as well while our universities are still using 7 because of its compatibility with every software.
7 is the last desktop OS (seeing how Microsoft claimed it will be the last Windows they release) 8 is a tablet OS ported to desktop 10 is a service platform rather than an OS
