    Eh... > 100%? Oh, no, first line with 63.4% probably depicts the percentage of all Windows versions in the total amount of hits and OS used. So 2/3 is on Windows, and the rest most likely on Apple Macintosh, besides mobile.

    Which is in line with the 3 month statistics of my own site (2 images for OS and Windows specifically):

    Now, I don't know much about these here computer thingies, so maybe somebody can help me out: Two versions of Vista, with plain ol' Vista being represented by only 11 users, and Longhorn being over a million? And whither Windows 7? What's Windows 2008?

    I'm confoosed.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.

    It seems Sean uses an outdated program for collecting statistics. Vista Longhorn, or Longhorn short, was the "development name" of what has now become Windows 7. So I guess the stats for Vista Longhorn, are Windows 7.

    I can't explain the extreme low number for Vista itself. Of all Windows users on my site in the past 3 months, about 20% still used Vista, versus 28% Windows 7.

    Maybe the data is actually even more garbled than I thought, because looking at the numbers, I am beginning to suspect that Windows 2008 (18% in Sean's APUG stats) is actually Windows 7. Maybe Vista Longhorn than represents a late Vista version, instead of Windows 7. With 11%, that wouldn't be too strange in the light of the statistics of my own site.

    Windows 2003 is at least a server version of Windows. Used in big organizations / companies to run networks.

    Windows ME is a version of Windows that came after Windows 98, but never grew to much popularity, as Microsoft released Windows XP just afterwards. In fact, I think most users switched from Windows 95 straight to XP, like most are now going from XP to 7 while skipping Vista.

    I thought Longhorn was the development code name for Vista, and W7 had a different one. Maybe you're right about W2008, though I'm thinking it's an upgraded W2003.
    I do find it funny about Vista having only 11 users. I know it was rather poorly regarded, given all the hype that preceded it, (I sure didn't switch!), but wow!

    You forgot Windows 2000, which were released between ME and XP. They were much better than any previous version of Windows.

    I did have the displeasure of using Windows Me at a job I had in 2000-01; it offered nothing substantial but did change some Excel commands. We demanded and got 98 back. Which only illustrates how worthless it was as an improvement (in a commercial environment, anyway). We asked for 2000 and were turned down flat.
    2000 was an NT based version, and so was indeed much superior to any of the DOS based Windows.
