Previously, we reported that the market share of Windows 10 increased significantly during the epidemic, probably because most users were upgraded while staying at home using computers.
Interestingly, the latest statistics show that the market share of Windows has declined, and the share of Windows 7 and Windows 10 versions have declined.
This part of the market that Microsoft lost was actually acquired by various Linux distributions and Apple’s macOS operating system. This was rarely the case in the past.
Statistics show that the market share of the Linux operating system has increased from the previous 1.36% to 2.87%, with a single month increase of more than 110%.
Although this is very low compared to the market share of up to 86% of the Windows system, for the Linux market share, this is already a very good result.
At the same time, Apple’s macOS operating system market share increased from 8.94% to 9.75%, an increase of about 10%, which is also very impressive for Apple.
The market share gained by Linux and macOS also corresponds to the lost market share of Windows, with Windows 7 and Windows 10 losing about 1% each.
