Android Set To Overtake Windows
Android is poised to overtake Windows as the world's most-used operating system. That's the word from web analytics service StatCounter, which monitors monitors worldwide web traffic with an eye towards device operating systems.
The firm found that 37.4 percent of devices online were Android -- just a hair behind Windows at 38.6 percent. The numbers are no surprise given the major trends over the same half decade: the PC market has been in a funk while mobile phones -- most of them Android -- have been selling like hotcakes (although growth is now leveling off).
