Windows 8.1 gains slightly

Windows 8.1 launched only a few months ago and is still trying to replace aging versions of Windows around the world. One of the oldest versions of Windows still in use, Windows XP, still holds a large share of the market for the OS.

The latest version of Windows, Windows 8.1, currently has only 3.95% of the Windows market with Windows 8 holding another 6.63% reports The Next Web. The most popular version of Windows is Windows 7 with 47.49% of the market.

Windows XP has 29.23% of the market and Vista has only 3.30% of the market. Overall, Windows has 90.72% of the Windows market. Mac OS has 7.68% of the market with Linux grabbing a scant 1.6%. Windows 8.1 is continuing to climb, but it has a long way to go to become more popular than the other OS versions.
