Windows 8.x close to overtaking Windows XP

The latest operating system marketshare statistics from Net Applications reveal Windows 8.x is close to overtaking the marketshare of Windows XP. This is primarily caused by a big drop in Windows XP's marketshare, use of the outdated operating system reportedly fell 6.7 percent to 17.2 percent in just a single month's time. The combined marketshare of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 on the other hand climbed to 16.8 percent.
Perhaps next month's results will show that XP hasn't really fallen so far so fast, and the October numbers are a statistical blip. It's certainly very unusual to see an operating system's market share fall by 6.7 percentage points. In fact, previously, it took XP almost a year to fall by this amount.

However, it's also possible that last month's figures — which showed XP unexpectedly holding its own (down from 23.89 percent to 23.87 percent) — were wrong. Perhaps XP actually dropped a couple of percentage points last month, and another couple of points this month. This would make sense in the context of users migrating away from XP, now that it's no longer supported.
