Default Vista Share Drops for the First Time In Two Years

Windows Vista lost market share last month for the first time in almost two years, a sign that users are already abandoning the oft-ridiculed operating system in favor of the new Windows 7. According to Web metrics firm Net Applications, Vista dropped 0.2 percentage points during September to end the month at an 18.6% slice of the operating system pie. Windows 7, meanwhile, gained 0.3 percentage points, its biggest one-month gain since Microsoft began handing out the new OS to the public in January 2009. Windows 7 powered an estimated 1.5% of all computers that connected to the Internet last month, also a record.

Steam survey is also telling, every single OS category has lost users except both Windows 7 listings. XP lost 1.38% of users in September, bit surprising given 7 is not yet publicly available.
