Microsoft’s woes: It’s a Windows-eat-Windows world | Royal Pingdom
[…] 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.
