    Windows by the numbers: Itís a topsy-turvy world, with Windows 10 down

    The status of both Windows 7 and Windows 10 remained muddled in April, an analytics vendor said this week, with their expected progress - Windows 7 in decline, 10 on the rise - again upended.

    According to California-based Net Applications, Windows 7 added more than a tenth of a percentage point of user share - an estimate of the portion of all PCs powered by that operating system - in April, ending the month on 43.6% of the world's PCs and on 49.3% of all systems running a flavor of Windows. (The second number is larger than the first because Windows accounted for 88.4% of all operating systems, not 100%.)
    Meanwhile, Windows 10 was flat last month, accounting for 33.8% of all personal computer operating systems and 38.2% of all those running Windows.

    Net Applications' latest data resembled that of March, when the metrics company said Windows 10 had dropped by the largest-ever amount and the should-be-disappearing Windows 7 had added the largest amount since the middle of 2015, before Windows 10 appeared.

    Percentages don't matter. Numbers do.

    1. How many Windows 10 instances came online during the period?
    2. How many went offline?
    3. How many Windows 7 instances came online?
    4. How many went offline?

    Every instance in #1 above is revenue for Microsoft.
    Every instance in #2 and 4 represents no revenue for anyone.
    Every instance in #3 ... hey wait, is anyone BUYING Windows 7 anymore? Maybe.
