OS Stats Aug 2012

New August 2012 statistics show that Windows 7 has finally passed Windows XP, after years of convincing people to upgrade, Microsoft grins. However, on the other hand, Mac OS X has also taken a step forward in front of Vista, after years of Apple trying to mass market its Mac operating system. For me personally i’m always rooting for Windows, as when it’s time to work, you can always count on Windows to get the job done. Finally, for all you Linux fans out there you still have some share of the market. Take a look up top to see those numbers.
