Windows 10 now claims almost 10% of market share


Microsoft launched Windows 10 about 5 months ago. The OS has been reportedly installed in more than 200 million devices. Now, according to the latest report from Net Applications, Windows 10 claims 9.96% of the market. In November, the OS claimed 9.00% of the market, which means the OS gained 0.96% market share in December. It seems like the OS’ growth slowed down a bit — back in October, the OS had a market share of 7.94%, and it gained 1.06% market share in November — however, in December, it gained only 0.96% market share.


For those wondering, here are some of the other interesting market share numbers:

  • Windows 7 now claims 55.68% of the market (down from 56.11%)
  • Windows XP: 10.93% (up from 10.59%)
  • Windows 8.1: 10.30% (down from 11.15%)
  • Windows 8: 2.76% (down from 2.88%)
  • OS X 10.11: 2.99% (up from 2.66%)
  • OS X 10.10: 2.23% (down from 2.45%)
  • Linux: 1.66% (up from 1.62%)
  • Chrome OS: Nowhere to be seen

The latest info from Net Applications is, indeed, very interesting. For example, Windows XP gained 0.34% of market share, while Windows 7’s market share decreased. What’s more interesting is Windows 10’s growth, which is slowing down a bit. What do you think of the latest Net Applications data? Let us know in the comment section below.
