Windows XP’s market share grows AGAIN!


Windows 8.1 is up from 10.04 per cent in January to 10.49 per cent in February on Netmarketshare’s numbers, and from 14.27 per cent to 14.78 per cent according to Statcounter.

That near-half-point gain was, however, offset by new gains for dear old Windows XP. Statcounter had it up from 11.99 per cent to 12.23 percent. Netmarketshare has it edging up from 18.93 per cent to 19.15 per cent.

Here’s Netmarketshare’s data:

That Windows XP is growing only a little more slowly than Windows 8.1 is remarkable, even when one takes into account the less-than-stunningly-accurate method both market watchers use of observing traffic as it hits web servers.
