The Google Chromebook has surpassed Apple’s MacBook in popularity. This is the first Chromebook to surpass the MacBook in the number of laptop users.
The International Data Corporation (IDC), an international market analyst, has prepared a research report. Surprisingly, they claim that the number of users of Google’s Chrome OS operating system is higher than the number of Apple’s Mac OS. They found out which computer user is using which operating system.
The reason is that IDC thinks that Chromebooks are becoming very popular among students due to low prices. Moreover, in the current situation in Corona, the tendency of students to buy laptops for online classes has increased. All in all, the current situation is much more favorable for Chromebooks.
Microsoft Windows is currently the first computer operating system (OS). It is used in 80.5 percent of computers. It is followed by Chrome OS (10.6 percent) and Mac OS (6.5 percent). Over the past year, Mac OS users have grown from 7.6 to 7.5 percent. The number of Linux users is the smallest (1.2 percent).
The first Chromebook appeared on the market in 2011. The difference between an OS and a general OS is that it depends on the web or network. / Internet
