    As Always, the devil is in the details. NetMarketShare's methodology is not useful for counting actual market share because it does some really stupid things.

    For instance, They only count a unique visitor on a per site basis once per day, but aggregate that data. So, if I visit two of their sites on the same day, I'm counted twice in their statistics. What's worse is that if I first visit that site in one browser or OS, and then come back to it 99 more times that day with a different browser and/or OS, only the first one is counted.

    This is also a world market share, which even if it was accurate (which it's wildly not so), it's not particularly relevant for a lot of us. China still has a very large percentage of XP users, most of which are using the pirated version of XP. So this neither translates to any real market share for western businesses or even a real statistic that means anything.
    . . .not sure, but sure did sound pretty. . .
