Windows 10 Passes Yosemite In First Month Of Release

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Windows 10

Windows 10 looks to be off to a a pretty strong start according to the folks at NetMarketShare. Just a month after its release to the general public, Microsoft’s latest operating system accounted for 5.21% of all Internet traffic from desktops and laptops in August.


That’s already surpassing the number of people using Mac’s OS X 10.10 Yosemite, which only accounts for about about 4.76% of users accessing the Internet. (Though, if you add in all Mac users – OS X 10.4 through 10.9, they total just under 8% of users)


But it’s still nearly double the the number of folks running Windows 8 (only 2.56%). Windows 8.1 users account for 11.39% of people accessing the Internet, bringing them close to the number of folks using Windows XP. That’s dropped down to just over 13% of Internet users. That’s a good thing, since the operating system no longer has any security support.


Windows 7 still reigns supreme with 57.67% of users, while poor Windows Vista lingers with 1.82%.

This always the point where someone asks, “What about Linux?”  Though Linux-based systems have a devoted following, all users total come to 1.63% of  those accessing the Internet.


Since the upgrade to Windows 10 is free for users of Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 – adoption will probably continue to be pretty rapid.  Microsoft says so far, more than 75 million people have upgraded to Windows 10.
