For long, Windows XP has been the most loved and most used flavor of Windows from Microsoft. Users all around the globe have been using it for years and it has been able to gather some huge following. However, now it seems that Windows 7, the latest Windows release, is becoming wildly popular and may soon steal the crown from Windows XP.


In a recent survey, it has been revealed that the gap between Windows XP and Windows 7 shares is bridging fast and Windows 7 may soon overtake Windows XP and grab the largest share in OS market around the globe.

Currently, XP has a market share of 44.8 percent whereas Windows 7 currently stands at 40.5 percent. This is a remarkable change in shares within months since back in April, XP was at 46 percent whereas Windows  7 had 38.8 percent share to its name. What is even more incredible is that Windows 7 hasn’t been around for too long, having been released only as late as 2009.  At this pace, Windows 7 may soon surpass Windows XP and grab the greatest share of the market.

XP has had a really  long run, reigning supreme in the OS market for whole ten years. Microsoft released Windows Vista to succeed XP but Vista was more or less a failure whereas  Windows 7 has steadily continued to grab more and more of the market share.

One of the reasons why Windows 7 has been rather slow in gathering market share is that users are always reluctant to migrate from a version they know very well to one which is rather new. Also, organizations and enterprise users in particular are even more reluctant to make the move since they have to overhaul their entire system.
