And why does it not matter? The point is Microsoft has always reported their sales this way, why do you feel the need to fault them for doing things the same way they've always done?

A gift for you smile.gif

Don't talk about things you don't know

As a matter of fact, this is what every company does. They just make commodities and don't give a crap if anyone uses them.
I'm sure the people at Toyota are saying, "Hey do you think anyone will use this rocket powered pogo stick? Who gives a crap... just make the bloody thing!"

netmarketshare tracks 160 million unique users for the week of november 11th: http://marketshare.hitslink.com/operating-system-market-share.aspx?qprid=10&qpcustomd=0&qptimeframe=W

windows 8 has captured 1.24% of the marketplace, just below linux's 1.4%.

it also tracks who's using the touch mode (windows 8 touch and windows rt touch)

- there are more people using windows 2000 or WINDOWS NT than are using windows 8 touch

- there are more people using WINDOWS 98 than windows rt

- windows rt is slightly ahead of windows me, they're both pegged at 0%

the numbers shift slightly, but only just barely if you filter results to us only

the us has a 14.83% market share according to the site, which means just shy of 24 million users. of those, 1.37% were running windows 8, which translates to 325 000 americans using windows 8.

windows rt has 0.01% in the us, which translates to 2373 windows rt users for the week of november 11th, rounding up. microsoft has 56,654 u.s. employees, so at least 23 out of every 24 ms employees doesn't have or use one.
