Netmarketshare's numbers show Windows 10's growth and Windows 7's decline
Whatever happened to all the diehards who were committed to using Windows XP forever? This ancient operating system still has some users, ranging from the British government to pirates in China. However, even on Netmarketshare's figures
(above), Windows XP has now been overtaken by Windows 10.
Last year, I posed a question here: How long before Windows 10 overtakes XP - or has it already?
In this post, I noted that: "In ball-park terms, XP has been losing around half a percentage point per month, over the past 12 months. If this trend continues, then Windows 10 could overtake XP in the January numbers, released on February 1, with a score of 11.0 percent vs 10.5 percent."
And so it has come to pass, more or less. Netmarketshare's January numbers put Windows 10 on 11.85 percent and XP on 11.42 percent. Both numbers are probably wrong, but I think the order is correct...
