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.

You can't really count PlayStation and iPhones in the stats.

Do you honestly think these visitors use these devices as their main computer?

In our house we have Macs/PCs, but the kids also browse with Wii, PSP, iPod Touch.

I think so, especially among the youngest internet users. Around here few kids have 'real' computers, but nearly every one of them has a cell phone and/or game system.

Those users' stats were so small as to be irrelevant anyway.
