“To summarize, we recommend Windows XP customers focus on an accelerated departure from Windows XP, with the goal to move to an environment with Windows 8 deployed side-by-side with Windows 7”. And the efforts seem to be paying off. Latest figures released by Net Applications confirm that Microsoft XP finally dropped to less than a 40 percent market share — 39.82% as a matter of fact. Windows 7 still held the top spot worldwide in November with a share of 44.71%.
