Windows 8.1 market share is finally growing, but Windows 7 has seen a spike in market share, while the ageing Windows XP is still taking a controlling piece of the OS pie.
Net Applications' latest data shows that in May 2014, Windows 8.1's market share sat at 6.35%, while Windows 8's market share was at 6.29%. None of this compares to Windows 7 which takes up a massive 50.06%, while Windows XP even takes up 25.27%. Windows Vista is still in the game, just, with 2.9%. Apple's Mac OS has just 7.39% of the OS market share, while Linux takes up 1.62%.
