News: Apple, Linux Users repeatedly mash "refresh" button
Okay, so that's just one way to explain the news story at ComputerWorld "Windows market share dives(*) below 90% for first time" - statistics don't lie, but they don't always answer the question you thought they did.
ComputerWorld also offers other explanations than their title:
Vince Vizzaccarro, Net Applications' executive vice president of marketing, attributed Windows' slip to some of the same factors he credited with pushing down the market share of Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser. "The more home users who are online, using Macs and Firefox and Safari, the more those shares go up," he said. November was notable for a higher-than-average number of weekend days, as well as the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S., he said.
Uh, in other words, expect to see the trend increase as more Mac and Firefox users get laid off and have to search for *** at home.
(*) For "dives", reads "descends by 0.84%" - view the graph at http://marketshare.hitslink.com/os-market-share.aspx?qprid=9 - yes, those are indeed graphs showing the (ahem) rise and fall of usage patterns. See if you can tell rising months from falling months without cheating by looking at the numbers! Three and a half percent, say, would be more like a "dive". Time to buy Sterling, I think!
