Operating System Market Share May 2011

June 24, 2011

Microsoft is still dominating the operating system market. With Windows XP (2002) still accounting for the highest percentage of computer users.  Apple users may be much smaller in number, however the adoption rate of newer operating systems is far higher. Microsoft is clearly doing a fantastic job at keeping Microsoft users loyal, however they still have a terrible stigma with new operating systems being unreliable. In our experience, Windows 7 is the first operating system Microsoft has released, that just worked on launch. This is perhaps as Vista was a learning curve for the significant changes Vista introduced, and 7 took the best part of.
