Windows Blue is already boosting Windows 8’s success, according to figures provided by StatCounter for the week of March 24, as the new Microsoft operating system is quickly increasing its market share.
Windows 8 has finally reached a 4.12 percent market share, becoming the fifth most popular operating system in the world and overtaking the iOS platform.
Windows 7 is, obviously, number one with a 51.41 percent market share, while Windows XP comes second with 23.52 percent. Mac OS X is third with 7.52 percent, while Windows Vista arrives the fourth with 5.84 percent.
While everybody expects Windows 8 to take off in the coming months, Microsoft may have to wait until mid-2013 when Windows Blue is expected to be launched to users. Blue is the first major Windows 8 makeover likely to bring a long list of improvements, including UI enhancements and new features.
