    Android beats Windows as most popular OS, raising questions about future of desktop

    A recent report from StatCounter said that Android is more popular than Windows in terms of internet use. Here’s what that means for the future of Android and the desktop.

    According to StatCounter, Android hit a worldwide OS internet usage market share of 37.93% in March 2017, putting it very slightly above Windows’ share of 37.91%.

    “This is a milestone in technology history and the end of an era,”

    The biggest reason for the shift in power is the growth of internet browsing on smartphones, especially in emerging markets. According to a map released by StatCounter, Android internet use was concentrated in countries in Asia and the Middle East, as well as many countries in Africa.
