Let me get this straight W7 looses market shares…really considering it no longer comes pre-made why would one with common sense think W7 wouldn’t loss market shares??? This story is about worthless as S(&(&^ hits the fan…

Also this stats…

Windows 7 lost 0.6% in May, which brings the total number of systems running the OS at 57.7%
vs

strong growth for Windows 8.1, StatCounter reports an increase of only 0.2% bringing the total to 16%
Strong Growth now that’s a bunch of :Z:Z:Z:Z:Z:Z:Z:Z A load of BS I call it…

Do one’s math…

16% isn’t greater then 57.7% no matter how you want to slice it…you loose market shares when your O/S no longer comes pre-made…“FACT” If 8.1 is so true why is Win10 coming out…already…

And I believe StatCounter about as much (&(* comes out of my rear…that I can flush down the toilet as fast as it comes out.

It’s a bit late now for Windows 8.1 share to be going up in any reasonable numbers, in two months with the release of 10 it will probably start dropping like a stone…

Two things: One, not only is it almost impossible to buy a new machine with Windows 7 pre-loaded, I don’t think they are selling any new retail licenses. If you can find them I think they’re just left over stock. Two: can someone explain to me why Windows 8 and 8.1 aren’t counted together. As far as I can recall, they didn’t split XP up into the different service packs (‘Boy XP SP2 is still the most popular operating system 10 months after XP SP3’s release’). XP is XP, Vista is Vista, and just because they started adding Apple decimal points instead of calling them service packs doesn’t mean 8 isn’t 8.
