Net Applications: Windows XP Loses Ground, Windows 8 Gains, and Mavericks Levels Off

Earlier today web analytics firm Net Applications released PC operating system numbers.

In a nutshell, today's report keys on trends we would expect: Windows XP, first released back in 2001, is still hanging on at just below 30%.  Windows 8/8.1 are in a dead heat with Vista, with Windows 8 finally starting to gain ground and Windows 7 is still by far, the Windows desktop champ.

On the Apple front, Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks saw a huge 21% market share jump in November.  Compared to December's numbers, Mavericks looked to be standing still with a 5% increase.
