Microsoft say that Windows 8 has accelerated it's growth from last month

Windows 8 has kept quite and has not got much market share even eleven months after it's launch in October. It has shown slow and steady improvement each month by gradually increasing it's market share but the major turn over came in the month of August when the new OS almost increased it's market share by nearly 2% (Netmarketshare).

"As we ramp up toward general availability of Windows 8.1, we’re seeing accelerating momentum with Windows 8. Windows 8 PCs were in demand for back to school and we saw a bump in activations (or new PCs coming online) and Net Apps data released earlier this month confirmed this bump between July and August. Our August activations were the highest for Windows 8 so far! And remember, consumers will be able to update their Windows 8 devices to Windows 8.1 for free through the Windows Store." said Microsoft in a blog post.
 Windows 8.1 will be out this October and this seems the main reason for sudden increase of popularity of Windows 8 between users. Windows 8 currently holds 7.41% of the market share which is still behind Windows 7 and the old Windows XP.
