TweakTown took a look at the latest operating system marketshare data from NetMarketShare and reports Windows 8 continues to be somewhat of a flop. The new operating system now has a marketshare of 3.17 percent, only slightly more than the 2.67 percent in February. The most popular operating system is Windows 7 with a marketshare of 44.73 percent, followed by Windows XP at 38.73 percent.
Windows 8 is used on 3.17 percent of computers, up from 2.67 percent in February. Vista, on the other hand, is found on 4.99 percent of systems. Windows XP is still found on 38.73 percent of systems and Windows 7 is the largest used operating system, found on 44.73 percent of systems.
Mac OS X 10.6-10.8 combined is found on below 7 percent of systems. Windows 8 uptake is likely to increase and is predicted to eclipse that of Vista within the year.
