According to data published Wednesday by web analytics company Net Applications, Windows 7’s December share of all personal computers slipped by two-tenths of a percentage point – a small difference from a flat November – to end the year at 26.6%. Windows 7’s portion of the user share of just Windows PCs fell four-tenths of a point, to 30.8%.
