Mac OS X market share up 29%, Leopard still most common - Page 4

I think iPhone sales are about 10 million a quarter? Or about there. What if iPad sales hit 10 million a quarter within the next year?

That's 20 million (almost installed base of Macs?) OsX 'computing' devices per quarter. 80 million per year. 160 million over 2 years. 240 million over 3 years. 320 million over 4 years. That's assuming flat line growth.

And if Mac sales can head towards 5 million a quarter over the next several years...

For me, it's not a case of what 'windows' does. Apple are doing their thing. And in the context of 'mobile', Windows is looking increasingly out of touch. Exciting times ahead for Apple users, methinks.

Lemon Bon Bon.

Hopefully they use OS X for more future products, like a Home Server or a much more powerful router. I think a Home Server would be a huge hit and would love to see a commercial router that can handle the traffic some homes have and the bandwidth some ISPs offer. 200Mbps coming to Finland next month.

Here is a chart you can use for most of the Mac OS X sales so far. Note Mac OS X 10.0 landed in March 2001.
http://www.businessinsider.com/chart...ows-os-2009-10 A rough estimate looks to be about 60M(?) OS X-based Macs sold so far? If I get an hour tomorrow I'll look up the quarters and graph it out.

So far, 51,419,000 Macs and 42,469,000 iPhones for a total of 93,888,000 devices running OS X (ie: Mac OS and iPhone OS) have been directly recorded. I didn't add Mac OS X Server, AppleTV or the iPod Touch unit sales to the mix. Only the iPod Touch can be determined and I don't think only for the last few quarters. Since Apple doesn't break out the iPod Touch sales you have to deduce the numbers from the OS X iPhone numbers minus the iPhone sales.

Nice work. The last few years since the iPhone was release show amazing Mac growth.

Excellent chart, do you have the details broken down by OS version number?

He is correct - there is no separate iPhone version of Darwin for them to release, thereby making your argument incorrect. I think the discussion is above you, rather than anyone else, and you obviously don't even know what "Darwin" is in this context.

Here's a space for you to use to go off on another tangent:

No, and I don't have either, and I am a lost to see why you think that would make a difference, my son has an iPod touch though.

Ah! It all comes clear now!: you enjoy starting arguments about things you have no experience with! I fully understand (I've done that myself, from time to time).

All I was saying, however, is that I thought it a pity that this thread about market share was missing the point if they were counting netbooks but not all the pocket Macs out there.

Now, jfanning, maybe (big maybe), later this month, when Apple releases the 10" version of the iPod Touch (which they've decided to name the iPad), and the 10" version of the iPhone (which they've decided to name the iPad3G), which all run on a version of Mac OSX with the Cocoa Touch layer, then maybe, just maybe, you'll understand my original point, and not get all hung about whether or not I have a pocket Mac in my pocket (which I most certainly do, btw).

I have hope for you, jfannning, open your eyes and close down your pride a bit. Arguments aren't about winning, they are about understanding.

Peace.

Yeah, and the iPhone and iPod touch sales are ramping up so fast you can't even afford to blink. There are probably closer to 50 million iPhones in the market (as of this second), and maybe as many as 30 million iPod Touches. All of which are unrepresented by Quantcas in this thread.

It's a big deal to not mention it. The iPhone OS has a big future, WinXP does not. i.e. the iPhone, Touch, and soon to be iPad are very worthy of mention, whereas the netbooks . . . not so much.

And onc I can get the iPod Touch numbers in there, which I think are beating the iPhone numbers you have a huge user base for OS X. Apple has no reason not to be making OS X from the kernel up as efficient as possible. There is just too much money at stake not to be dumping massive resources into refining it.

There seems to be an all-or-nothing attitude with may people. Statements like "Apple makes more money now from the iPhone so they means they don't care about Macs", "Apple dropped the term "computer" from their name that must mean they don't care about Macs", and "JObs said they are a mobile company that must mean they don't care about Mac users", but looking at the growth there is absolutely no way Apple will be reducing Mac support and the OS X foundation common to 50 million(?) devices in 2010 will make all versions of OS X better for it. At least, that is what I see.

+1
"Apple dropped the term "computer". That's a particular bugbear of mine! Despite dropping the "computer" name Apple just keep selling more and more of them each year. Seeing as how HP makes more money from non-computers... than computers, troll logic would have you believe that they should stop making computers too.

Interesting figures Sol. It's only anecdotal, but most of the analysts reckon that iPod Touch sales are around one third of all iPod sales... and around 65% of iPhone sales.

I think it may be a bit of a stretch to count all owners of G3 iMacs and iBooks (2001-2) as active OS X users. I mean they possible are... but could be using newer gear.

From the horses mouth. Back in June 2009, Phil Schiller made a big deal of announcing that there were 75 million OS X users. Mac, iPhone and iTouch. Using my patented 'sticky note math' I reckon that figure reaches around 130 million by the end of this quarter. Add the iPad and a new iPhone... and a following wind, and that could be close to 150 million at the next WWDC.

Interesting times.

To clarify, my numbers aren't to show installed base, but to answer Lemon Bon Bon's earlier question of how many devices has Apple sold running a form of OS X.

So if they are running a version OSX, will Apple release a new XCode with a Mac target of ARM? Or is this where you are missing the point again?

I total know what Darwin is, it is the open source core of OSX, open source in the fact that Apple will release the Intel code, but not the ARM. Why is this, especailly if they are the same like you claim? Now you can use your tangent since you don't understand.

What an effing idiotic thing to say.

OBTW, the answer is not only YES, but they already have the beta SDK in distribution.

OS X iPhone SDK 3.2.

Gee it's just the regular Xcode with the iPhone/iPad specific APIs added in. With the appropriate compile targets!!!

OMG OS X apps compilable for an ARM core! Ohes noes!!!!!

Wanna prove anything more about your lack of clue?

effing? Do you meaning fucking? Why not using the word.

With the current XCode for the Mac, you can target PPC and Intel, are you telling me from that same source you can target ARM? That's right, you don't have a clue do you.

j•fann•ing [j•fann•ing] alt [j•fann\\•ing] noun, verb

–noun
1. a handle on the AI boards (see internet forums)

–verb
1. to perform or do repeatedly in a comically ineffective manner: e.g. To pull a jfanning
2. to lack wit and sensibility: e.g. effing? "Do you meaning fucking? Why not using the word."
2. to cherry-pick inaccurately and in a pathetic maner: e.g. "With the current XCode for the Mac" when responding to a post on OS X iPhone SDK 3.2 in Xcode 3.2

-prediction
1. The only place down from here is if the verb form [ e.g. To pull a jfanning ] were to become a 4chan meme.

Thank for this Adobe. That's Adobe who actually drives professional market for Apple.

If Adobe was supporting their older suite on Snow Leopard the move would be more rapid. I know because I also run some business and i am not planning to spend extra $1000-$1500 for professional graphics ugrades just so to run Snow Leopard if older one works just fine and does everything we need with publishers and print houses. Do you think it is smart to shell out some money in this economy... especially when publishing is not doing so well as it used to?

If you do not have any expensive pro applications then you can go any way you want. After all you're going to pay $29-$49 only for Snow Leopard upgrade.

I would think that those pros forced to buy new Apple computer and stil having license for older Leopard might try to downgrade if hardware allows.

Apple PC's with OS X are at 6.3% worldwide market share.
HP, Acer,etc. PC's with Windows are at 91.7% worldwide market share.

//
OSX like Linux market share is and was negligible, so why even bother with amazing news about enormous procentage.

Did you really just compare one PC vendor against all PC vendors then say their growth is negligible?!?!?!

Of course, it's not about PC vendors but Operating system share. And as I said OSX like Linux market share is and was negligible.

if it's about operating systems and not about building PCs then Apple would have licensed their superior OS to all those vendors that have been wanting to get out from underneath MS' thumb for all these decades. But they haven't, so having the most OS marketshare isn't the most important thing for Apple or its customers.

They are, but have stated none. You've just stated myopic opinions as absolutions statements. A little objectivity goes a long way. Fact!
