OS and Browser Share

Take a look at this graph of OS market share on this blog: Now look at the browser share: A few things come to mind looking at these charts:
  • Windows XP share has dropped below 50% for the first time since I started this blog
  • Firefox 1.x (26%) and IE 6.0 (29%) are almost in a dead heat
  • Safari 1.x (22%) is pretty close to the Big 2. Given the mostly Apple focused nature of this blog that isn't too surprising
  • Mac OS X share is 29%, so Firefox is taking share from both Safari and IE, probably because of people that are using both Mac OS X and Windows.
  • I have a hard time believing anyone reading this blog is using Windows 98, NT, ME, or OS 9
  • Unknown OS must be lumping in a lot of different systems, but I bet Linux makes up the majority
This is going to be a very interesting year to see how these numbers change.
