Only 5.44 percent of PCs across the globe have installed Microsoft Windows 11, meaning it gained 1.83 percentage points in a month. To put this figure in perspective only ten per cent of the population have some form of diabetes.

Windows 7 is in third place with 9.61 per cent, Windows 8.1 in fourth with 2.45 per cent, plain old Windows 8 with 0.69 per cent, and bless its heart, Windows XP still exists on 0.39 per cent .

In total, Windows has almost 76 per cent of the global desktop OS market followed by OS X with 15.7 per cent and Linux with 2.6 per cent. 

Android comprised 42.37 percent of total operating system market share, with Windows trailing on 30.11 percent, iOS on 17.6 percent, OS X on 6.24 percent, and Linux on 1.04 percent.
