Windows 10 market share approaching Windows 8.1
The folks over at Neowin have recently reported that Microsoft’s latest operating system is quickly approaching a large installation base worldwide and should eventually overtake Windows 8.1 as the world’s second most dominant operating system (behind Windows 7) sometime later this year.
StatCounter’s Global Stats for Operating Systems installed worldwide show Microsoft Windows 10 climbing from less than one third of one percent market share in July 2015 to almost 11 percent market share at the end of December 2015. In comparison, Windows 8.1 started with less than one third of one percent market share at launch in October 2013 and reached almost 11 percent in November 2014. In other words, it has taken Windows 10 just five months to do what Windows 8.1 did in thirteen.
By another metric, GoSquared shows internet traffic statistics for Windows 10 devices climbing at 25 percent of all traffic, Windows 8 at 21 percent of all traffic, and Windows 7 at 48 percent of all traffic.
