The latest operating system marketshare data from Statcounter reveals that Windows 7 has now overtaken Windows XP's marketshare in the US. Microsoft's latest operating system had a pretty rapid adoption, it's now used by 31.8 percent of US computer users, with Windows XP at 31.55 percent, Windows Vista at 19.12 percent, Mac OS X at 14.74 percent and Linux at 0.7 percent.
This month's statistics from Statcounter.com shows Windows 7 at 31.8%, Windows XP at 31.55%, Windows Vista at 19.12%, Mac OS X at 14.74%, and Linux at 0.7%. The three versions of Windows command a marketshare of 82.47% in the United States. Marketshare across all Windows versions was down by a hairline, where Windows was on 82.58% of all American computers in December 2010.
