Chromebooks Are Now 21% Of Notebooks And 10% Of All Computers And Tablets
J Thoendell stashed this in Tech
There’s a more important point behind this though: Chrome OS has blown right through the sort of market penetration that Apple's Mac OS was getting in the 90s and Microsoft thought of that as a threat and quite rightly too. For the whole success of Microsoft’s Windows is based upon network effects. Everyone buys Windows because everyone buys Windows. Because that is true then everyone develops for Windows and so the loop closes.
This is the first time in decades that Microsoft has given up market share.
What's amazing is that Android is taking market share of its own, too.
