Windows 8 Sales Are In Decline But Windows 7 Soars
Windows 8 is on some slippery ground right now while its older brother is showing huge gains.
Last month Net Applications, an analytics company, June report showed that Windows 8 & 8.1 only held 12.5% of the desktop and notebook market share; compared to Windows Vista which held a 12.8% market share in its heyday. While Windows 7 on the other hand has seen an estimated growth of 50% in the last 6 months as a result of Windows XP’s end of support.
According to Stat Counter, another analytics company, Windows 7 currently holds a 55% market share of personal computers versus 8/8.1’s 14.3%, XP’s dwindling 16.3%, and Vista’s 3.4%.
These stats my have you wondering if Windows 8/8.1 is yet another Windows ME/Vista blunder in the making. It’s hard to say but time will tell.
