Windows 7: Dip in Windows Is Just a Blip on the Radar?

Dip in Windows Is Just a Blip on the Radar?

The Windows operating system had been sitting pretty with a 90 percent or more market share for ... well ... forever. Then November and December 2008 came along.

According to Web metrics tracking company Net Applications, Windows market share declined 1.8 percentage points in November and December, its biggest two-month dip ever and double the previous record of .92 percent, which took place a year ago.

Unfortunately for Microsoft, in the same two-month time period, Mac OS X set a record for increased market share, jumping above 9 percent for the first time, according to Net Applications, which bases its numbers on Internet usage and not sales.


...Buy a Mac. As if it's a quick fix for all of life's ills. As if it will make me smarter, cooler and more creative. That's the illusion Apple has been successfully shilling for years.

Why are we discussing Apple fuzz here? I had the impression these forums existed to talk about Windows 7, not Apple, Mac OS X or market share. Please, let's concentrate on finding problems and getting them fixed.

Hi,

This is General discussion thread. Some people may be interested in M$ future and that of 7 etc.

If you're not, ignore it.

The one thing that just bugs the heck out of me is MS ad. All they do is just react to Apple and have some vauge idea about what Windows is instead of noting that Windows are great gaming platforms, business machines, and less proprietary then Macs. And oh, if you run in user mode are just a secure. A Mac is something you wear to impress people, Windows is something that you get your work or play done with.
