At the end of July, I posted a graph showing the popularity of OS X Mountain Lion among my readers.
Six days after the release of the new version of OS X, a little bit less than a third of users were already using it.
Just a few minutes ago I ran the same report and this is the result:
Two months after the release of OS X Mountain Lion, more than half of the visitors of this blog are already using the latest version of OS X.
Of course, this is not an absolute number that indicates the overall adoption of OS X Mountain Lion across the world. It remains a good indication of it though. I’d be curious to see if other fellow bloggers get similar results.
It is not a secret that fast adoption of technologies just released to the market is an important thing for companies because it drives revenue and in turn fosters additional innovation. In the case of Apple it also helps drive additional users toward technologies such as iCloud that are strategic to the future company’s growth.
