Apple has been hugely successful with this effort. Webmetrics firm NetMarketShare released figures for August showing that the Mac OS X platform has overtaken Windows Vista in worldwide usage. Mac OS X has a 7.13 percent of the market share, while Windows Vista has 6.15 percent. Now, in and of itself, I am not surprised with this figure at all. Most of us know that Windows Vista was one of the worst operating systems ever invented. Only Windows ME can come close to being the worst. So it is no surprise that Mac has overtaken Windows Vista.
And, finally, Windows 7 has overtaken Windows XP as being the most popular operating system on the planet. I love Windows 7, but I also love Mac OS X. I predict that Mac OS X will gain even more market share once Windows 8 is in general release.
Happy Labor Day everyone!
