On July 25 of this year, Apple let its latest version of OS X – 10.8 Mountain Lion – out of its cage and into the Mac App Store. Apple has called it the “most successful [OS X] release ever,” and today, Chitika Insights released Mountain Lion’s current web share statistics – and they show us exactly how popular Mountain Lion truly is.
According to the stats, Mountain Lion currently holds 10% of all OS X web traffic – and that’s just in one month. In comparison, OS X 10.7 Lion took three months to get to 14% market share. If the current adoption rate holds steady, Mountain Lion is set to surpass Lion’s growth rate in a matter of just a few weeks.
However, that’s just 10% of Macs. There are still a lot of people who have yet to upgrade their Macs to Mountain Lion – and I want to know if any of you guys, our wonderful readers, still haven’t taken the plunge.
