Real Numeric Statistics for Win, Mac, Lnx, etc. installations
« on: January 27, 2011, 01:19:36 PM »
Hello,

I need to get some real stats on how many computers run which O/S.  My purposes cannot use "market share" as an indicator, but a best estimate of the real numbers.  I will derive my own market share and percentage numbers myself.

Thanks!

Maybe you could get some indications from StatCounter's Global Stats.

Quote from: StatCounter GS FAQ
StatCounter Global Stats are based on over 15 billion hits per month, by a random sample of people worldwide, to over 3 million global websites, covering multiple interest areas and geographic locations.

For example: Top 5 Operating Systems from Dec 09 to Dec 10

Well, most are given as %, so you'll have a hard time there.

BAH~! Forget it~! Just make them up like everyone else~! :P :D
