Windows Vista Is Six Years Old, Still a Disaster
Microsoft’s biggest flop in the OS industry has recently turned 6
Windows Vista, the product that’s considered to be the biggest flop in Microsoft’s history, has recently turned six, as the operating system was officially launched on January 30, 2007.With Windows 8 now alive and kicking, Windows Vista is losing ground even quicker, as figures provided by Net Applications for the month of January indicate that the six-year-old software’s market share is decreasing at a very fast pace.
While Windows 7 remains the number one operating system in the world with a share of 44.48 percent, Windows Vista is still third, but only with 5.24 percent.
Windows Vista started losing ground ever since Windows 7 was officially released, with the market share falling significantly on a monthly basis.
For example, Vista had a share of 11.49 percent in February 2011, while one year later it dropped to 8.10 percent.
