Re: Windows 7 gains more market share than Windows 8 and 8.1 combined

Those numbers don't line up very well with StatCounter.com

»gs.statcounter.com/#os-ww-monthl···7-201312

They have
Windows 7 at 51.34%
XP 17.1%
Win8 8.15%
MacOSX 7.25%
iOS 5.32%
Vista 4.74%
Android 2.63%
Linux 1.22%

I wouldn't doubt at all that Windows 7 is growing like wild fire given that XP is going bye-bye and corporations are moving to Windows 7 in a big way from XP and these are the same companies who never move to the latest and greatest in anything, but like going with the safe bet (and lets be honest here Windows 7 is a heck of an OS).

Other than test machines, everything here is Windows 8.1.

IOS runs on iPads as well and apparently those are popular (Surfaces out number iPads here 2 to 1).

Mostly regular non-touch screens here.

Many of the corporations I've interfaced with have an Apple-only rule concerning tablets due to the difficulty in writing consistent procedures for Android based devices.

I haven't seen any Microsoft Surface tablets in the wild yet although I tried to get one for myself on the weekend (sold out at the black Friday price).

^ I think this is what it is as well.

Companies big and small will ride XP as long as possible, and it seems clear they are for the most part choosing to stick with the familiar interface of Win7 as they upgrade/refresh.
