If Windows RT is a “lemon” as some have suggested, then what does that make the Chromebook? ZDNet’s Ed Bott took a look at the latest numbers from NetMarketShare and found that there’s absolutely no mention of Google’s Chrome OS anywhere in its statistics for the most-used desktop operating systems. When Bott asked NetMarketShare why Chrome hadn’t made an appearance in the rankings, the firm replied that Chromebooks accounted for “0.023 percent weighted worldwide usage,” which put them below the minimum 0.1% threshold required to make an appearance on the charts. To put this into perspective, Bott notes that “in nearly two years on the market, all of those Chromebooks have achieved a smaller percentage of usage than Windows RT earned as of January 2013, after only three months on the market.”
