This is testament to the rapid growth and adoption of this fine OS and shows it gaining well since February where it had a usage share of 8.92%. The biggest shift seems to be from XP users to this OS; indicative that a growing number of XP users feel comfort in the transition to 7 vs Vista where it was more reknowned for its faults and dislikes.

 

Comparatively, Windows Vista sat at about 16.51% in Feb, where March showed it to be at 16.01%; whilst Windows XP of course remains the most widely used one at 64.46%, though down over a full percent from its February share at 65.49%.
