I recently browsed an article that said, "in the US, W10 has more users than W7".

Hi all, Win 10 going flat is all the Win 10 users that have returned to Win 7.
I have seen it everywhere, people returning.
Can only blame M$ and I do !

Hi All

What does 'market share' mean? Is this people buying new Windows 7 machines, or new software or reverting to Windows 7 on their computers?

Thanks

In the case of Operating systems it basically means number of visits for each OS, to a set of sites, It's a way of giving a figure but has many flaws - One is that the actual OS used can be spoofed to show others,(useful to visit some sites which are designed to work with a particular OS), and it relies on the device actually being connected to the Net and visiting one of the monitored sites.

These checks often concentrate on a particular market so can totally disregard the others (especially the huge Chinese market where the authorities prevent access to the net except for Chinese sites )

I personally totally ignore these "Market Share" sites as they are often so "off" to be useless

Due to reasons I cannot mention My system does not allow me to visit the Statcounter site as it is seen as a "ClickBait" Site
