Windows 8.1 Finally Passes Windows 8 in Market Share

Windows 8.1 finally passed Windows 8.0 and it only took seven short months. It’s amazing what a largely free OS can accomplish. big grin One factor was noticed in this month’s latest figures was that Windows 7 also showed a growth spurt since the end of support cycle for Windows XP.

It might be hard to get hold of Windows 7 these days, but that hasn’t stopped the OS packing on growth. It went from 49.27 percent in April to 50.06 percent in May -- finally breaking through the 50 percent barrier -- for an increase of 0.79 percent, nearly double that of Windows 8.x.
