The latest stats from net market share shows that Windows 8 and Windows 7 have managed to grab some share from the aging XP. 

Windows 8 jumps from 7.41% to 8.02%. Microsoft would not be the happiest to see the improvement of Windows 8's market share.Also it's notable that Windows 8.1 will hit the shelves on 18th of this month. Windows 8 has never shown great improvement but it has been steadily increasing it's market share each month.

Windows 7,on the other hand is the most popular OS out there with as much as 46.43% of the market share.People are moving to Windows 7 from Windows XP rather than the latest Windows 8. It's because Windows 7 is more familiar and stable and users are feeling comfortable with Windows 7 and it's desktop.
