From overtaking Mac OSX in it’s first couple weeks, to finally taking over Vista in under a year, Windows 7 continues to gain remarkable market share. Windows XP is dropping significantly after the release of Windows 7, as well.
Microsoft’s success with Windows 7 began before the product was even widely available. Released in October 2009, the operating system has received praise from consumers, businesses, and the media. In November 2009, Windows 7 managed to surpass Apple’s Snow Leopard market share in just two weeks. In early February, it was revealed that Windows 7 had reached 10% market share in just three months.
