On September 01, 2011, Net Applications stated that Mac OS X 10.7, Lion, accounts for 1% of all desktop operating. This is based on desktops that connect to the Internet. Mac OS X accounts for 6% of all desktop operating systems connected to the Internet within the last month. Mac OS X Lion was released on July 20th. Lion is very close to Leopard’s usage. Approximately 1.2% of all desktop operating systems being used on the internet are Mac OS X 10.5, Leopard. Mac OS X 10.6, Snow Leopard, is still the most commonly used Apple desktop operating system. 3.5% of all desktop operating systems being used are Mac OS X 10.6. Users are starting to migrate to Lion ever since its release. Based on all this information, 6% of all desktop operating systems are running Mac OS X. This means that Lion accounts of 1 out of 6 Macs.
As Lion gains popularity, more people will migrate from Snow Leopard and older Mac operating systems to Lion. I think that 1 out of 6 Macs running Lion is a big step forward, since it has only been one and a half months since its release. Do you think Lion is a good improvement for Mac OS X? Is it worth the $29.99 to you? Feel free to leave comments or suggestions and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
