Windows XP, the 11-year-old OS that Microsoft struggles to kill in order to move customers to newer software, was the second choice last month, as it recorded a market share of 30.08 percent.

Windows Vista, Microsoft’s very own disaster, came third with 5.67 percent, followed by Mac OS X 10.8 with 2.27 percent.
