According to data collected by web metrics firm Net Applications, Windows 7s global usage share broke the 6% mark over the weekend.
ZDNet: The usage graph shows periodic shark fins rising out from the smooth upward trend. These blips represent data collected on Saturdays and Sundays and indicate that the Windows 7 OS is more popular with home users than business. Itll be interesting to see how this data changes over the holidays. We should see stronger Windows 7 usage towards the end of the month because more people will be at home on vacation. In the new year we should get an indication of how strong Windows 7 and Win 7 powered PCs has been during this holiday season.
