Filed under: Business, OS Updates, AppleEarlier today, Lee Mathews told you how Windows 7 had passed Vista in OS market share, and how Windows XP still seems to have a little gas left in its tank. But what of Mac OS X? Things are looking okay, but not great, for Apple's desktop operating system, which lost ground for the 4th straight month, according to the July report from Net Applications (as reported by ComputerWorld).
Apple's 2/10ths of a percentage point drop was its largest drop in over a year and a half. OS X peaked at 5.3% in October, but then Microsoft introduced Windows 7, and was all downhill from there. Apple's back down to 5%. Win7's growth seems to be slowing, but will Apple be able to get those points back? Is Mac software suffering now that iPhones and iPads make up over half of Apple's business? Certainly, Apple's not hurting at all right now, thanks to record Mac sales in the second quarter of this year, but should they be worried that WIndows 7 PCs are selling even faster?
