OS Stats Released, Big Surprise.

Surprise, surprise!  Did you think those Apple ads were really working?  We didn't either, and as gaming elitists, we all know how many games Mac can handle.  Who remembers Oregon Trail?

The stats for operating systems can be seen here (change statistic in bottom to OS).  It is instantly noticeable that in the following regions: Worldwide, China, Africa, and, uh, almost everywhere else, Windows XP and Vista are the dominant forces.  Don't tell your Mactarded friends - they won't believe you.  In China, Microsoft dominates 99% of the market, while in South Africa it is much the same.  

In other recent news, it was revealed that the iPhone holds .45% of the global phone market (that's less than half a percent), the iPod holds a solid .87% of the market, and the global use of Mac OS's has fallen by 50%, from 2% to 1.5%.  Yeah, big deal.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
