Net Applications Pie Chart for Market Share
Net Applications, an online company that is geared towards finding the market shares of various companies, has found that Mac OS X is in second place for operating systems with a 7.94% share. Let’s just round and bring that up to 8%, alright? The only operating system beating Mac OS X is obviously Windows with a solid 90.89% share. In third comes your favorite open source operating system, Linux, with a .8% market share. However, the fourth place entry is sort of interesting; it’s the iPhone, not far behind Linux with a .16% share, and I’m sure the iPhone 3G will bring that number up.

When you think about it, 8% is a huge number. With billions of computers worldwide, Mac OS X has made a significant dent in the operating system market, and I don’t see that stopping anytime soon. If Apple keeps innovating and keeps making their operating system more appealing to Windows users, they will surely surpass 10% in the near future. With Snow Leopard around the corner, it will be interesting to see what happens.
