Macs now account for 10% of active personal computers

Macs accounted for approximately one in every 10 personal computers used to reach the web over the last two months, according to recent data from an analytics vendor.

By the tally of California-based Net Applications, macOS – the operating system that runs natively only on Macs – powered 10% of the global PC user share in January and an almost-flat 9.9% in February.
