For a new version of Microsoft's operating system that just began shipping to consumers just a few months ago, Microsoft Windows 7 is doing quite well, according to new figures release by Web analytics firm Net Applications.

Simply on day-to-day usage, Windows 7 passed the 10 percent mark on Jan. 31, while on a monthly average basis, it captured 7.51 percent, Net Applications said.

Still, Windows XP continues to lead the pack with a 66.31 percent market share in January, followed by Windows Vista (17.39 percent). Apple's Mac OS X 10.5 came in at No. 4 for January, at 2.36 percent, followed by Mac OS X 10.6 (1.79 percent) and Linux at 1.02 percent.

Net Applications is not statistics and it's Microsoft-sponsored

It's time for the 'press' (sheep) to stop the echo chamber; Net Applications is not statistics and it's Microsoft-sponsored

Re: Windows 7 Use Surpasses 10 Percent

Are they taking about the spare OS? I want to know OS sales, not COMPUTER sales, I already knew computers are selling better than ever.

budgie-remix 16.04.2 Comes Equipped with the HWE Kernel from Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS

The great folks from the Ubuntu Budgie (formerly budgie-remix) GNU/Linux distribution had the pleasure of announcing the general availability of budgie-remix 16.04.2. What's budgie-remix 16.04.2, you may wonder? Well, as Ubuntu Budgie did not yet have a stable release, and because many people are still using the distro on their PCs with its previous name (budgie-remix), the developers updated it to be based on the recently released Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system. Being based on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, which inherits the newer Linux 4.8 kernel and an updated graphics stack based on Mesa 12.0 3D Graphics Library from Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), budgie-remix 16.04.2 comes equipped with its HWE kernel and graphics stack, as well as the latest Budgie 10.2.9 desktop environment.
