The end of Microsoft’s leadership worldwide of the OS market

Android now world’s most popular operating system

“This is a milestone in technology history and the end of an era,” commented Aodhan Cullen, CEO, StatCounter. “It marks the end of Microsoft’s leadership worldwide of the OS market which it has held since the 1980s. It also represents a major breakthrough for Android which held just 2.4% of global internet usage share only five years ago.”

However, Windows still dominates the worldwide operating system desktop market (PC and laptop) with a 84% internet usage share in March.
