FUD Zilla spotted Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system is now more popular than Apple's Mac OS. The latest marketshare data from Net Application indicates Windows 7 has climbed above six percent of the global operating system market.
The data is based on visitors to sites monitored by Net Applications so it while it gives an indication of usage it is not an accurate figure for market share. What is interesting is that Windows 7 use seems to increase on Saturday and Sunday which means that most punters are using the OS in the weekends.
This confirms many analysts views that while the OS is popular it is only being used in the home. Business users are yet to change their operating systems to Windows 7 until at least next year. Still it is good news for Microsoft.
