Windows market share over time

[…] There are a couple things we’d like to point out here:

  • Look how Windows as a group (i.e. Windows 7 Vista XP) hasn’t gained any market share at all in the desktop OS space. That’s the blue line at the top.
  • Then look how Windows 7 and the combined Windows XP Vista lines mirror each other. One is increasing at the same pace the other is decreasing.

And that’s the really interesting part. Windows 7 may be a huge success and selling like crazy, but it isn’t growing the overall market share of Windows as you might have expected. It’s cannibalizing the other versions of Windows.
