According to data from Net Applications, Windows 7 is still the top operating system with a 44.55% market share, while Windows XP comes in second place at 38.99%. Windows 8 is up by 0.41% compared to the previous month, which is obviously good news for Microsoft. Windows 8 is currently at a 2.67% market share for the month of February. Windows Vista remains steady with a 5.17% market share. One interesting thing to note is that Windows RT (touch) seems to have a 0.02% market share according to the data.
