Microsoft's latest OS took home 2.67 percent of all global traffic seen by Web tracker NetApplications last month. That put it in fourth place among all operating system versions, just ahead of Mac OS X 10.8 and behind Windows Vista.
But that was only a slight rise from January's figure of 2.26 percent, which itself jumped from 1.72 percent in December and 1.09 percent in November.
Windows 7 remained in first place though its share was virtually unchanged at 44.55 percent. In second place, Windows XP's share dipped slightly to 38.99 percent. And Windows Vista continued its gradual descent, ekeing out a 5.17 percent share.
