Half of Macs Now Running OS X Mavericks

OS X MavericksOS X Mavericks (10.9) is powering 50% of all Macs, according to the latest data collected by Net Applications.

“Net Applications calculates operating system user share with data obtained from more than 160 million unique visitors who browse 40,000 Web sites that the company monitors for clients,” Gregg Keizer explained on ComputerWorld.

Next to Mavericks, OS X Snow Leopard (10.6) has the largest user base, although it has dropped down to 17%. It’s interesting to see that OS X Snow Leopard topped both OS X Lion (10.7) and OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) as Snow Leopard is no longer supported by Apple.

OS X 10.10?

Apple has not released the name for the next iteration of OS X (10.10), let alone when it will be available.  If the company follows the same pattern as last year, OS X 10.10 will be revealed at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June and a developer preview released at the same time.  That leave an official launch for OS X 10.10 near the end of October.
