Windows XP market share dips below 50 percent

Windows XP market share dips below 50 percent

After a healthy 10-year run, Windows XP may finally be losing its overwhelming grip on computer users.

Though it’s still the most heavily used version of the Windows operating system, XP’s market share among all operating systems finally dipped just below the 50 percent mark last month, according to stats out today from Net Applications.

The aging OS has gradually been shedding market share a bit each month over the past few years, touching 62 percent a year ago and 51 percent in June before its latest dip in July, according to Net Applications.

At the same time, Windows 7–the current version of the OS–has just under 28 percent share among all operating systems, including Apple’s Mac OS X and iOS. But Windows 7 has steadily grabbed more customers since its official release in October 2009. Meanwhile, Vista’s grip on the market has steadily fallen each month and now rests at just over 9 percent for July. Altogether, Windows controls about 87 percent of the overall OS market.
