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.

Woops, it was indeed 160 million, instead of just 160, of course. It's Monday for me too, people ;) .

So many more question came up then.
And who can confirm that really millions not some "ups we better add some 0 then"?
160 millions is huge numbers. Who paid for this tracking? It is not part time job to track hundreds of millions.

Well, uhm, gosh, I don't know... Maybe Net Applications which gets mentioned all over the article and the linked website?

Just a guess, though.
