Windows 7 Market Share 2012

Windows 7 for the first time ever has captured more than half of the global operating system market, according to data compiled by Web analytics firm StatCounter. The desktop OS had a 50.2% market share in June, leading the nearly 11-year old Windows XP OS, which controlled 29.9% of the market.

Windows 7′s milestone was achieved only months before Microsoft is set to release its latest operating system, Windows 8.
