Microsoft Windows XP, more then 10 years after its launch continues to be the most used PC operating system in the world. According to stats from Net Applications, Windows XP was used by 46.08 percent of all PC owners in April 2012, a slight reduction from 46.86 percent market share in March 2012. Windows 7 is now in second place with 38.67 percent of the PC OS market share, compared to 37.54 percent in March.
Microsoft’s timeline to end official support for Windows XP is less than two years away and Microsoft is continuing to send out warnings to Windows XP users, especially businesses, to upgrade their PCs to Windows 7 as soon as possible.
Net Applications’ statistics also claim that Windows Vista came in third in the PC OS market share race for April 2012 with 7.32 percent, followed by Mac OS X 10.6 at 2.71 percent and Mac OS X 10.7 coming in also at 2.71 percent.
This staying power is a real testament to the stability and security, (which over the years has increased substantially) of Windows XP.
