Really? It takes an awful lot to move Windows 10 market share up or down these days, but apparently February was not that kind a month for Microsoft’s newest operating system. The company is coming off of the rollout of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, a process which took a fair few months. But instead of helping the...

As weird as it sounds, Windows XP actually managed to increase its market share in the month of October 2017. Surprising, for an operating system that launched 16 years ago.
