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.

If you cared to read that article, you would know. But if you feel more comfortable with 160 because of those many 0s which makes your eyes go round, hey... no problem.

I do not read articles full of lies.
"Windows wins" but gain is negative in numbers?
Pure manipulation of someone and quite stupid one.
Pure lies and speculations -> reading it will only prevent from thinking critically.

The headline says, "Windows 7" wins.

As you can see from the linked chart, Windows 7 DID make gains, just as the headline says.
