Windows 7: Windows 7 Breathing Down Vista’s Neck While Eating Away At XP

Windows 7 Breathing Down Vista’s Neck While Eating Away At XP

It won’t be long until Windows 7 overtakes Windows Vista in terms of market share. In fact, the latest iteration of the Windows client is now breathing down its predecessor’s neck, while convincing more and more Windows users to jump ship. In fact, if Windows 7 continues to perform the way it has so far, the operating system will enjoy a market share greater than Vista’s in under a year since launch.

Vista has been on a downward trend since October 2009, when Windows 7 hit the store shelves. According to statistics made available by Net Applications, Vista’s usage share decreased from 18.83%, in the month of Windows 7’s General Availability deadline, to a low of 15.26% at the end of May 2010. In just its first seven months on the market, Windows 7 has grabbed no less than 12.67% of the OS market, and is poised to become the second most used operating system worldwide in just two to three months.

Not really surprising. Since I got into the 7 beta back in Nov 2008 I deceased using XP, and only used Vista in Leopard/Snow Leopard within a VM. Still have Vista in the VM just for something to remind me how good 7 really is.
