Windows 8 is still below Windows XP in market share

That is not the only worrying data in terms of updates if we trust the data of NetMarketShare. The fall in XP users, which does not seem to be accelerating as one would expect, continues to affect new licenses for Windows 7. A system that is five years old and at this rate could become the next XP for Microsoft.

The Windows 8 data is also curious. It seems that users are staying there and are not updating -free of charge- to Windows 8.1. Instead, the latest version of Microsoft’s OS is gaining share at the expense of other systems.

The global image that we take from all this is that Microsoft continues to cost, and a lot, to update its users.

via Windows XP is still the second most used system despite the end of its support.
