Noise Over Mac OS Market Share "Slip"

Brad Oliver Re:Nothing to see here, move along (481 comments)

If you click on each month, and combine Mac OS with MacIntel, you get the following:

Sep 05: 3.74%
Oct 05: 3.87%
Nov 05: 4.11%
Dec 05: 4.35%
Jan 06: 4.21%
Feb 06: 4.30% (4.28 + 0.03)
Mar 06: 4.37% (4.29 + 0.08)
Apr 06: 4.49% (4.33 + 0.16)
May 06: 4.42% (4.19 + 0.23)
Jun 06: 4.32% (3.92 + 0.36)
Jul 06: 4.29% (3.80 + 0.49)
Aug 06: 4.33% (3.71 + 0.62)

The reported 0.02 decline by the Inquirer is the difference of Dec 05 (4.35) vs Aug 05 (4.33). I'm not sure why Dec 05 was chosen as the comparison month vs. Sep 05 (which paints a rosier picture) or Apr 06 (which paints a bleaker picture) but there you have it.
