Windows market share in South Africa

Summary: An “Unknown” OS (not Windows) is taking market share away from Windows; whatever is going on with these statistics, it seems clear Microsoft isn’t coping with a fast-changing world, hence so many layoffs (far more than 10,000 — the “official” number that media loves parroting without investigating; Microsoft is 42 billion dollars in debt and the debt grew more than tenfold since 2010)

“Microsoft, the world’s most valuable company, declared a profit of $4.5 billion in 1998; when the cost of options awarded that year, plus the change in the value of outstanding options, is deducted, the firm made a loss of $18 billion, according to Smithers.”

The Economist, 1999

Internet Explorer (% share, China)

Summary: According to samples from 3 million sites (locally uploaded data), Microsoft is down from almost complete dominance of the browser market in China (2010) to almost nothing; even Edge is hovering at around 5% — nowhere near the past levels

The data tells another story:

Search Engine Market Share India

Summary: Bing down from 1.1% to 0.9% since ChatGPT was first “unveiled” (distracting from 4 consecutive months of mass layoffs in the company)


In Taiwan, Windows Shedding Off Share, GNU/Linux Gaining

Posted in Asia, GNU/Linux, Microsoft, Windows at 8:36 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Since COVID-19 broke out in China:

GNU/Linux 1% in 2019, about 4% by now
National security will improve if or when Windows is eliminated altogether. Months ago GNU/Linux rose above 4%.

Summary: The rate at which GNU/Linux is adopted in Taiwan is noteworthy; if those statistics are reliable enough, then from around 1% of desktops/laptops in 2019 GNU/Linux rose to about 4% by now

Among Users in the World’s Largest Population, Microsoft is the 1%

Edge developers recently laid off, too (the media barely mentioned this; it’s all about chaffbot hype)

India's browsers share

Summary: A sobering look at India shows that Microsoft lost control of the country (Windows slipped to 16% market share while GNU/Linux grew a lot; Bing is minuscule [1, 2]; Edge fell to 1.01% and now approaches “decimal point” territories)
