Operating System / Windows / Browser Share (June 2020)

[German]After the June 2020 is over, I would like to take a look at the current figures of desktop operating system distribution as of the end of June 2020. Furthermore, there is a look at the browser shares on the desktop.


Windows is the elephant on the desktop

Looking at the latest figures from netmarketshare.com (to the end of June 2020), Windows still runs 86.69% (no change from the previous month) of desktop systems. Mac OS is running at 9.22% (previous month: 9.68%), while Linux is jumping to 3.61% (previous month 3.17%). So apart from the slight increase for Linux, there has been no real change in market share, Windows continues to dominate the desktop, although it has had to give up a little in recent months.

Desktop OS version share at a glance

In the analysis of the distribution by operating system version, the NetMarketShare for desktop operating systems website gives the following shares:

  • Windows 10  comes to 58.93% (previous month 57.83%),
  • Windows 7 is at 23.35 % (previous month 24.28 %),
  • Windows 8.1 still comes to 2.95% (previous month 3.04%),
  • and macOS 10.14 comes to 2.15 % (previous month 2.46 %)

So Windows 10 has made up a little ground compared to the previous month, the end of support for Windows 7 in January 2020 shows little effect. Windows 7 continues to run on almost every fourth desktop system.

I was somewhat surprised by the decline in macOS, which has been the case for months – but this may be due to statistical fluctuations. Linux does not actually appear in the above graphic. But what you can also state: The change from Windows 7 to Windows 10 did not take place in the previous month 2020 either. People are sticking with the operating systems currently in use.

Browser share on the desktop

Also for the past month I would like to take a look at the browser distribution on the desktop, because in January 2020 the Chromium Edge was introduced as an innovation. Among the browsers on desktop systems, Google Chrome is the undisputed leader with 70.19% (previous month 69.81%), followed by the Edge, which rises to second place with 8.07% (previous month 7.86%).

Somewhere this week, however, I read somewhere (I no longer have the source) that the Chromium Edge's share is not really rising – even though Microsoft is tricking the browser into pushing the systems. Firefox has to be satisfied with 7.58 % (previous month 7.23 %). The Internet Explorer comes to 4.35% (previous month 4.40%).
