    Market Share July 2017 - XP Up


    Here is NetMarketShare's info for last month:


    • XP up
    • W10 flat
    • W7 & W8.1 dropped slightly
    • OS X & Other dropped slightly


    I assume that XP "increased" because people were trying to get the XP Patches that MS released last month.

    Maybe because new British HMS Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers use computers with XP ?

    Yesterday I saw a news item about Automation/Robots and one of the labs was using XP to control/monitor the robots.

    One of the Financial firms that they "cross to" on Sky News Australia also uses XP.

    ME 2. My grand kids beat the heck out of this installation for 2 years... Maybe it is in the "other" category?

    Kinda wondering if it were possible to know which countries still keep using outdated OS like this the most.

    I mean if it's just a bunch of underdeveloped countries but with high population causing this lack in progress then I guess it's like that and that's the way it is but if we're talking about high development countries then jeez... get a grip by doing everyone and yourself a favor and change to the newest system, will ya?

    I find it hard to believe that XP shares are up and Win10 shares are flat.

    Lies, damned lies and statistics.

    These surveys are basically bs as they do not take a large enough statistical sample to have any significant meaning.
