Windows 8 ekes out to 2.2 per cent market share ...

Windows 8 may not be in the PC world on fire, but at least he oust gains market share.

The latest versions of Windows has obtained a market share of 2.26 percent in January, as recorded by Net Applications Web tracker. Which showed a slow but steady increase of 1.72 percent in December and 1.09 percent in November.

Windows 8 has been floating around for some time as beta and preview editions, but the official release began at the end of October.

January numbers showed Windows 8 to fifth place among the different versions of the operating system, just behind Mac OS X 10.8 with a share of 2.44 percent.

Windows 7 has remained in first place with a share of 44.4 percent, down slightly from the previous month. No. 2 Windows XP grabbed 39.5 percent market share, up slightly from December. Although still in third place, Vista has continued to lose users with a share of 5.24 per cent.

How Windows 8 has fared in comparison with Windows 7 during its initial launch last month? Too well.

Windows 7 was officially launched in October 2009. In January 2010, Windows 7 has already gained a market share of 7.71 percent, according to Net Applications statistics.

And how Windows 8 will FARE forward remains a question mark. The new operating system has not yet managed to ignite PC sales, which continue to collapse. Even people who want to upgrade to Windows 8 can now be discouraged by the higher price.

Microsoft was dangling upgrade Windows 8 Pro for only $ 39.99. Better yet, anyone who has purchased Windows 7 after June last year has managed to hang Windows 8 Pro for only $ 14.99.

But this promotion is no longer. To date, upgrade to Windows 8 will cost $ 119.99 for the standard version and $ 199.99 for the Pro version.
