Modern PCs are broadly divided into Windows and Mac. Although we often see some people using Macbook in a café, have you ever been curious about “What is the actual ratio between Windows and Mac in the world?”
We operate four large-scale information sites. I’d like to look at the ratio between Windows users and Mac users in Japan from its Google Analytics analysis for November 2021.
Besides, we will also look at the ratio of enthusiast-oriented Linux users and Chromebook users.
◇Information site 1
All PC users 24,910
Mac OS 3,916
Chrome OS 229
◇Information site 2
All PC users 18,817
Mac OS 2,032
Chrome OS 89
◇Information site 3
All PC users 623
Mac OS 108
Chrome OS 27
◇Information site 4
All PC users 767
Mac OS 80
Chrome OS 14
◆Total of information site from 1 to 4
All PC users 45,532 100%
Windows 38,615 84.8%
Mac OS 6,136 13.5%
Linux 422 0.9%
Chrome OS 359 0.8%
Actually, past Mac models had a feature called Boot Camp, and some people access it from Windows even though they are on a Mac, because they can install and use Windows as it is but I probably think that such people are a very small minority.
Mac OS was about 10% when we measured it some years ago, so it extended its share by 3% but it seems that PCs are still in the age of Windows monopoly.
I think Chromebooks are a good idea, but the fact that the storage is based on the premise of a Google Drive subscription may be a sign of Google’s commercial spirit, and this may be the reason why the market share is not growing.
