96.97 percent of Web users run Microsoft Windows

Posted by David Hunter at 8:03 PM ET.

This seems to be a market stats day, so I thought I would mention the latest from OneStat: ( ), the number one provider of real-time intelligence web analytics, today reported that Microsoft’s Windows dominates the operating system market with a global usage share of 96.97 percent. The leading operating system on the web is Microsoft’s Windows XP with a global usage share of 86.80 percent.

The 10 most popular operating systems in the world on the web are: …

Here’s the top 6:

Rank OS %
1 Windows XP 86.80
2 Windows 2000 6.09
3 Windows 98 2.68
4 Macintosh 2.32
5 Windows ME 1.09
6 Linux 0.36

The magnitude of the Windows predominance on the Web isn’t really a surprise, although I would expect there are more of the older Windows versions tucked away doing non-Internet applications.
