Windows XP marketshare down 6% in two months

Posted on Tuesday, October 01 2013 @ 18:37:25 CEST by

The latest OS marketshare update from Net Applications reveals that the marketshare of Microsoft's ancient Windows XP operating system fell 2.25 percent last month to 31.41 percent. It seems more and more users are upgrading to more modern versions of Windows as XP's marketshare dipped nearly six percent in the last two months. Windows 8 on the other hand now stands at 8.02 percent, up from 7.41 percent in August. The data also shows that 0.87 percent of the market is currently running the Windows 8.1 Preview.
Net Applications' data for September shows that Windows 7 is still number one in OS market share with 46.43 percent, up from 45.63 percent in August. Windows 8 is third with 8.02 percent, a gain compared to August's 7.41 percent but not nearly as much as Windows 8 gained from July to August, where it went up over two percentage points.

Windows 8.1, which was made available as a preview version in June by Microsoft, is listed at holding 0.87 percent of the OS market share by Net Applications for September, compared to 0.24 percent in August. Windows 8.1 will officially launch on October 18th.
