Windows XP is finally down, as the 2001 operating system has reached its lowest rate, which is 2,29%.
And while all eyes are on Windows 10 and the soon-to-be-retired Windows 7, Microsoft is still monitoring the course of Windows XP.
And there is a good reason for this: the 2001 operating system launched by 2014 and retired XNUMX, is still, surprisingly, widely used.
However, according to some new statistics provided by NetMarketShare, Windows XP finally goes out after a year of 2018 that was full of ups and downs.
A year ago, Window XP was operating at about 4,59% of desktop computers worldwide, which is a pretty big achievement for an operating system that was retired four years ago.
The strangest thing is that its market share at 2018 has improved and reached 5,04% in May, for a reason that is very difficult to explain. Window XP then followed a downward trend by dropping to 3,19% in September of 2018, but they again regained the 4,54% in December.
Since then, however, Window XP has declined steadily, and 2019 in March reached the lowest market share since 2014 retirement. The operating system now has a share of just 2,29% worldwide and there is a strong likelihood of continued decline in the coming months.
If you are wondering why someone should renounce Windows XP, the answer lies in the lack of security updates and software support for them. Not only does Microsoft no longer engage in HP vulnerabilities, but third-party application support is missing, so most of the programs running on this operating system are already obsolete.
And as Wind Winds 7 looks like, they will follow the same story as Windows Window XP, and it will take several years for them to completely erase.
