This 9.3% combined share is actually only slightly higher than the previous month's 9.25% combined share. In the previous month, Windows 8 held a 7.53% share while Windows 8.1 held 1.72%. In other words, Windows 8 market share dropped while Windows 8.1's market share increased, yet the combined share saw a minimal increase.

Windows 7, on the other hand, actually saw an increase in market share from 46.42% for the month of October to 46.64% for the month of November. Windows XP maintains its second place position with a 31.22% share.

It is nice to see that Windows 8.1 is beginning to see an increase in market share as the months go by. Lets hope it continues increasing.
