    That is possible. Businesses might give there employees older computers. Relative might give there grandkids an older computer and so on. I do actually see windows 7 increase plausible. Places getting rid of their windows 7 at reduced prices. I even considered getting a vista system at one time.
    That makes no sense. If a computer changes hands that does not change the overall inventory. If I give you my computer, that does not change the total number of computers in the world.

    In any case, the numbers seem dodgy to me.
    Why?
    Even though I don't like the W8 series, it doesn't seem reasonable that ~5 percentage points of the Desktop PC users running it would suddenly swap back to XP.

    It seems more likely that NetMarketShare accidentally included the sites that they recently excluded, which resulted in that ~6% swap from XP to the W8 series (a couple of months ago).

    Whs,
    For the most part you are correct about gifts, there is a way that would work but very few people would do that. However, I still standby places selling Windows 7 at reduced prices could very well increase the usage statistics in Windows 7.

    "Windows 7 remains the top used operating system for PCs, with a 56.26% share in December, up from 53.71% in November. Windows XP, which Microsoft no longer supports, had an 18.26% share in December, higher than the 13.57% it had in November."

    yes, but ,now TODAY and when Win 8, Win 8.1 and Win 10 saw/see the light....there are way more tablets and Iphones then ever before.

    I found and still find Win 7 a bit lame, not having any personality.....

    For me Win 8 should have had the chance for more development, but no, now we have Win 10, a crippled Win 8/Win 7 combo.

    Whaw.....but since everybody is happy....let it be....

    Right, there are still ways to buy a Windows 7 PC - but at the tune of 30 Million+ in 1 month ?? And from where did the 50 Million new XPs come from.
