Default Re: So Many XP Users Still

Vista and Windows 7 are making a dent. The steam hardware survey is a pretty good indicator. It showed that finally Windows XP was under 50% marketshare. It also showed a steeper decline in Windows Vista users (percentage wise) because the majority of Windows 7 upgrades came from Windows Vista. But ever so slowly XP's marketshare is shrinking just a bit. I know Steam is primarily a gamer-based audience but I'm assuming that's who we're talking about here since it's obvious why many businesses and casual PC users are happy with XP. One interesting thing that the steam survey showed is a lot of gamers have DX10 capable cards now but nearly half are still using XP! I'm not sure if that means Vista flopped more than DX10 or DX10 flopped more than Vista?
