Windows 10 takes 3 per cent market share

Windows 10 takes 3 per cent market share

Less than a week since its launch Windows 10 has taken 3 per cent market share, if we believe what StatCounter says. The new OS is getting a very positive reception but these results surpass even the best expectations of Microsoft and users alike.

According to StatCounter on August 2 Windows 10 commanded 3.01 per cent of the OS market with the leader being Windows 7 with 52.21 per cent, followed by Windows 8.1 and Windows XP with 16.89 per cent and 9.29 per cent, respectively. Windows 8 commanded 3.9 per cent with the rest being left to OS X and other versions of Windows and Linux.

Three per cent does not look that much but having this share five days after the launch of Windows 10 is an impressive result. In fact it took Windows 8 much more time to reach this market share before falling into oblivion some months later. So it looks like Windows 10 has every chance to become the new Windows 7 very soon.
