While still comparatively small, Windows 8 jumped 37 percent, moving from 5.40 percent to 7.41 percent.
Windows 7 jumped from 44.49 percent to 45.63 percent, with the two new operating systems taking share from the extremely aged Windows XP. XP fell to 33.6 percent, over a 10 percent drop from July.
Mac OS X (in all iterations) moved slightly to 7.28 percent.
It is unclear why Windows 8 saw such a large jump for the month, but there is the potential that the large price drops on the Surface tablets had an effect on the OS' share.
