According to the statistics provided by Net Applications, for the first time ever Windows 7 has overtaken its older brother Windows XP as the most popular desktop operating software throughout the globe. The operating system appeared to be a little more popular than Vista
CNET has recently released their chart which shows the most popular operating systems in the world, and the chart says that it’s undoubtedly the end of an era. As you remember, XP has ruled the computer world since the beginning of time, with its first users being literally primitive pond life just getting the hang of backbones.
Net Applications confirmed that at the end of the last month, the market share of Windows 7 was 42.76%, which is 0.26% more than that of Windows XP (42.5%). In the meantime, Microsoft has seen Windows 7’s share increase by roughly one percentage point every month for around the past year. It has been taking computer users at the same level from Windows XP. As for Windows Vista, its share has remained static at around 6.1% over the past three months. When Windows 8 is released, the popularity of XP will most likely see further decrease.
In spite of the claims from the tame Apple press, which said that Cupertino was giving Windows a good kicking, its OSX was only a bit more popular than the obviously unpopular Vista. Indeed, the only way any of the Apple operating systems can be made statistically significant is if they are added all together. The company’s combined share of the desktop market is only 7.11%, while Linux could hardly get a look in and turned out to have been unchanged. It looks like proprietary software holds 99.2% of the computer market, so Linux use seems to have fallen.

|Windows 7 RULES!|
|Aids are more popular than vista|
|hahaha mac os just beats Windows Vista in the Marketshare, after doing a little research Windows Vista sits at 7.34% while mac os sits at 7.55%. The big shock is Linux is 2%.|
Windows 8 will change things radically with its touchscreen technology but still able to use your trusty mouse and keyboard, although the "Kill Switch" built into Windows 8 puts me off.
Windows 7 for me maha!!

You mean "mac os'". You are comparing combined MULTIPLE Mac OS's with a single Windows OS. Apples and oranges. A single MAC OS doesn't beat the second worst Windows OS (Me being first).
|and here comes windows 8, the big brother of vista seems like to screw it all up again. you think ms would learn but maybe not|
|of course, if you force people to use it and they must have it, it only makes sense it is more popular.|
i still liked xp better, win7 has bugs that are unbelievable they let them get by or missed them...
thats what happens when too many different teams make parts of one larger thing and don't communicate with each other or test it correctly.
|Please do not get windows 8, As I do prefer Windows 7. I do know that a lot of users are sticking to XP and Windows 7 and below.|
The design of windows 8 is better on mobiles then putting it on desktop PC or Laptop. If a update comes trough for Windows 7 to update it to Windows 8, I will not download it personally as lot as been changed to the desktop it self.
I totally agree Windows 7 is the best software in history,
|Windows 7 is best OS....|

As for Windows 7 to me its popular for 2 reasons, its easy to use and a dam sight cheaper to buy a Windows PC than an APPLE

|You're going to be able to customize win8 like win7 desktop if you so wish. But when Windows Surface tablets, Windows 8 phone and all the Microsoft products are out and updated, it will be an entirely new experience. That is what they are going for. They see how tablets are outselling PC's, and so they expect that to become part of the experience and want to "mesh" them together.|
|win 8 is good for those who go for look and theme..|
win 7 is now stable.
