Windows 8′s market share were slashed up to 6.66% right from 7.53%, i.e. by almost 0.87% in the previous month. However, Windows 8.1 did managed a rise to 0.92% giving an entire market share of Windows 8 to 7.58% and collective growth of a mere 0.05%. The numbers are certainly disappointing as it must’ve grabbed some of the share of Windows 8.
The major reason for Windows 8 failure is Windows 7. Interestingly, a plethora of tech firms still ship Windows 7 powered laptops and notebooks.

Surprisingly, it shows a jump of 0.22% for the month of November, impressive for a 4 year old OS, to a remarkable 46.64%.
Alongside these, the previous versions were facing the normal scenarios. Windows Vista declined by 0.06% whereas XP by a minimal 0.02%. At this current rate, they’ll presumably stay around eternally, although in meager figures.
