Net Applications' statistics for last month place Macintosh's operating system market share at 6.46 percent, according to MacDailyNews. The numbers represent more than a 2 percent increase in the last nine months, the story says.
Microsoft's Windows XP holds the lion's share, with 82 percent, and Windows 2000 is a far removed second 4.3 percent. Mac OS's 3.95 percent edged out Windows Vista by .21 percent for third, and MacIntel follows with 2.5 percent, Net Applications indicates.
Not surprisingly, the MacDailyNews writer emphasizes that the numbers themselves aren't as significant as the fact that they represent consistent growth for Mac in the OS space.
