Is Windows XP Finally Losing Steam? Market Share Numbers Paint a Mixed Picture

Yet somehow, Windows XP is still a fan favorite 10 years after its release, at least according to its market share numbers. But is the love affair with XP finally starting to fizzle?

On the flip side, even though XP's share continues to decline, there are still more users rocking the decade old OS than there are Windows 7 (27.92 percent) and Windows Vista (9.27 percent) combined.
