Windows 10 Market Share On Steam


steam-logoWindows 10 Inches Forward on Steam

Judging by the numerous charts, graphs and articles on the internet, Windows 10’s market share is creeping upwards. In some areas it has taken a superior stance when compared to Windows 7 and the very persistent Windows XP operating systems. Oddly, until recently, XP has had a super-glue effect on some die-hard users who simply can’t seem to let go. Some of those folks have managed to break away from its talon-like grip and are moving towards Windows 7 now. And the lightning bolt strikes!

This is going to be short and sweet. It is aimed at the (probably single) Number Geeks out there who can stare at charts, graphs, lines and pies all day long without getting the least bit bored. I must confess to being one of those people. “Sorry, my Delightful Dumpling.”
