Windows 8 drops to 7.53% market share, falling for the first time as Windows 8.1 takes 1.72% share

October was a big month for both Microsoft and Apple, which released new operating system versions: Windows 8.1 and OS X 10.9, respectively. It was Microsoft that saw the biggest impact, with Windows 8 losing market share for the first time, as users both upgraded to Windows 8.1 and went out to buy new PCs.

I love that pie chart.

1. Windows versions like Win 95 and Millennium still outstrip Linux on the desktop

2. Win XP
Windows XP, which dropped 0.18 percentage points (from 31.42 percent to 31.24 percent).


With about 5 months to go before everyone with XP in a secure environment goes out fo HIPAA, PCI DSS and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, XP is still at over 30% penetration.

This means we still can't ignore IE8 after all this time. Please kill this OS soon!
