Vista losing market share

MICROSOFT'S GINGER-HAIRED stepchild of an operating system, Vista has started to lose market share to its replacement, Windows 7.

Even though Windows 7 has not been officially released yet it is already making an impact, according to web metrics firm Net Applications.
It said Vista lost 0.2 per cent during September to end the month with 18.6 per cent of the operating system market. It also said Windows 7 gained 0.3 per cent, its biggest one-month gain since Microsoft began handing out the new OS to the great unwashed at the beginning of the year.

Even if the Vole has not received any cash for Windows 7 yet, it apparently powered 1.5 per cent of computers that connected to the subset of the Internet monitored by Net App last month.

The Vole will release the full version of Windows 7 later this month.

However while Net Application's figures may have a bit of good news for the Vole, it also shows how bad Vista was for Microsoft.
It means that Vista managed to gain only 19 per cent market share in its entire history. Windows XP, Microsoft's eight year old operating system, accounted for 71.5 per cent of all operating systems that connected to servers Net App monitored last month.
Windows XP has also been losing ground for two years, too. However Microsoft still holds 92.8 per cent of the market, according to Net App.

Over the last month Mac OS X climbed by nearly 0.25 percentage points. Apparently it is in five per cent of all machines that popped onto Net App's corner of the world wide web last month.

That news is not really a great surprise considering Vistas chequered past history.  8)

What surprised me is why it ever had any market share, lets hope those who think they can dump the latest version of their operating system on the public because they want to grab another few hundred billion learn something from this debacle.
