Windows 7 is still the most popular operating system out there. According to stats from NetMarketShare, the OS can be found on nearly 52% of computers in use. Windows 10 is coming on strong, though. The new OS is currently found on 14% of PCs and will probably see a surge in numbers as we get closer to the end of Microsoft’s free upgrade offer for Windows 7 and 8.1 users.


Windows 8 and 8.1 can be found on 12% of PCs and XP is still on nearly 11% of PCs, despite the fact that security support ended two years ago. Vista runs on close to 1.5% of PCs.

Mac OS X 10.11 can be found on 4% of computers and 10.10 runs on 2%. While Linux users are extremely loyal, less than 2% of home users are running a Linux-based system.
