Windows is now below 90%.  Apple OSX is taking quite a bit by storm....  
They're back in education, people don't mind a $2K premium if it means 
little downtime.  They were down to <2% 15 years ago....


The Register is pretty impartial and outside the US 'pay for your 
opinion' news.

The article is from a year ago.  I expect that Windows is probably below 
87% or more now.
