Net Applications, a company that measures operating system usage and trends, has published its latest findings regarding the operating system market.

According to the latest report Windows 8 has reached 1.09 per cent of usage for the first time ever. In just one month of availability this isn’t a bad result.

Windows 7 continues its reign as the most popular operating system with the market share of Windows 7 reaching 44.71 per cent by the end of November. Windows 7 added 0.11 per cent of popularity in just a month, which means consumers are still interested in this OS.

Windows XP is the big loser in the picture – this once mighty OS went down to 39.82 per cent of usage, going below 40 per cent for the first time in ten years.
