    Windows 7 shows higher infection rates than XP in last quarter of 2013

    25.9% for Windows 7
    32.4% for Vista
    24.2% for XP

    Microsoft has normalized the figures to take account of differences in numbers using each OS.
    Microsoft is quick to point out that, "In general, infection rates for more recently
    released operating systems and service packs tend to be lower than infection rates for
    earlier releases, for both client and server platforms.

    It was Rotbrow that was most responsible for the dramatic increase in the CCM metric in 4Q13.

    Now with Windows XP EOL support last month I imagine the numbers will change for 2014.
