The August report of Net Applications has announced that Windows 7 is now the most popular desktop operating system. Boasting an impressive 43% of the OS pie, Windows 7 is at the top of mountain, accounting for some 450 Million licenses of Windows.
Just this August, Windows 7 surpassed XP as the most popular OS. With Windows 7, Microsoft has an indomitable 92% share of the market. How does the rest of the competition stack up… the closest competitor, Mac OS 10.7 has just 2.37% of the market.
As Windows 7 success stories seem to headline the news, Microsoft has been busy prepping up its next-gen OS called Windows 8. Launching this October, Windows 8 will improve where Windows 7 left off, but will innovate in ways Microsoft has never done before.
For the first time since 1987, Microsoft has finally got itself a new logo.
The new logo was introduced on Thursday, and it is the first in Microsoft’s history to include a graphic. The font for the new logo is Segoe, which Microsoft uses for many of its other products.
The graphic on the left has the colors of red, blue, green and yellow, representing the company’s diverse portfolio, according to a TechNet posting.
This comes at a time of new products from Microsoft, including Windows 8 and Surface tablets.
Adobe finally pulled the plug on its Flash Player for the Android Market. The move comes just a few weeks after Adobe’s decision to kill all of its Flash Player applications from the mobile space.
Only Microsoft was lucky enough to embed the Adobe Flash code into Internet Explorer. Apple and Google got Adobe’s rejection when they asked to have the company’s popular Flash Player on mobile devices. Dejected, Apple settled with HTML5-powered videos to use on its iPad.
Now Google got the surprise when Adobe quickly deleted the Flash Android app… now it seems no one except Microsoft will be able to embed Adobe’s Flash technology….hmm… so much for favoritism.
