OS X Mavericks has reached a 51% adoption in under a year

On stage today, at the WWDC 2014 keynote speech Apple announced that they’ve got 40 million copies of their latest OS X release Mavericks on their users computers. As their proudly claim, this represents a good 51% adoption rate among the Mac OS user base.

These numbers reportedly make the OS X Maverics the fastest growing computer operating system in the world.

In a comparison, Windows 8 has reached only 14% user adoption since its release in October 2012. But let’s not forget that Maverics is a free update, while Windows 8 is a major release that requires an extra license purchase.
