Net Stats Show Apple Market Share Near 10 Percent
Even in this slowed-down economy, it looks like Apple is doing some things right.
Apple has been above eight percent for three months in a row now--November 2008's 8.9 percent was a record high. Now that the January numbers are in, Apple has hit the 9.9 percentage mark. At this pace, OS X is on course to break through the 10 percent mark by the end of this month. Windows, meanwhile, dropped to 88.26 percent. Safari usage also saw a little bump as well, going from 7.93 to 8.23 percent.
Recall also that Gartner predicted that Apple would double its market share by 2011. Slow and steady wins the race?
