In the News Since it's nigh on impossible to produce accurate figures of operating system usage, we have to make do with figures that provide a rough estimate, at best. One such set of statistics are the figures from Net Applications, which tracks the 160 million monthly visitors to its hosted websites. The latest figures from January 2009 have been published, and they show that the rise of Mac OS X continues, as well as that of the iPhone and iPod Touch. Unsurprisingly, Windows 7 did quite well too.

Well, perhaps it's more consistant across osX that other platforms but MS Office is inconsistant across it's own program suite let along across the entire Windows platform.

Though not the best, it is the new user favorite so I'll offer Ubuntu as an example also; it's mostly consistent and as a preinstalled OS it "just works" like any other OS preinstalled by the vendor who's already smoothed out the edges.

This entire "my daddy OS can beat up your daddy OS" discussion is hot air being blown around yet again; but then, that's a weekly occurrence (not picking on osnews, it's a weekly thing everywhere).
