Within one month of its launch, Windows 7 is already ahead of Mac OS X in term of its market share. With the failure of Windows Vista, the market share of Windows has already been dropped in the past. But with the launch of Windows 7, the new operating system from Microsoft has started tasting its early success.
According to Internet metrics company Net Applications,
“Last Saturday and Sunday, Windows 7 powered an estimated 5% and 5.14% of all computers that were online those days. The two-day average of 5.07% was higher than the 5% of the market share that Apple’s operating system averaged for the week of Nov. 15-21”.
Windows 7 News has recently reported that, “It’s a clear indication that sales of Windows 7 are storming ahead and that Microsoft’s new operating system has indeed been extremely well received by the press, public and business. But with the total Microsoft Windows market share sitting at 92.5% it’s still got a huge mountain to climb to replace Windows XP and Vista on desktops around the world.”
Windows already have a good market share and with the launch of Windows 7, they are trying to prove that Microsoft will always be the winner in market share race.
