According to the latest results of the desktop OS market share in the US for April 2011 collected by StatCounter, it looks like people are finally leaving Windows XP behind and getting an upgrade to Windows 7. For the first time since it became the most popular operating system around, Windows XP’s market share has been trumped by Windows 7.

Good for Microsoft, I guess

Never understood the hate on Vista. Got my shop machine still on it, maybe I just don't/haven't used the "bug ridden" features that all the complaints have risen around. Seems all based on the "top" tech media fanatics.

What's the Other category?

The only OS's I can think of are Linux, Windows and OSX...?

This is quite an accomplishment. Two years after Windows 7 had been certified Gold and reached RTM status it was able to overtake an OS that had a Market share since 2001.

Each Windows version is being counted as a seperate entity on this chart, Win2k and 98/95 probably the 2%.

That Linux figure is interesting.
There's a crap ton more people using it now with the advent of Ubuntu, would think it would be a little higher than that.. Also, what the hell is included in other? Aside from Windows and OSX there really aren't any major players aside from Linux that would have a decent amount of market share...

Free BSD and another other POSIX compatible OS.
