Apple, today releases the ninth Developer Preview, the build 12F36 for its OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.5. This comes two weeks ahead of the previous seed of the build 12F35 and just a day after Apple seeded the seventh OSX Mavericks developer preview. The update is available as a software update in the Mac App store as well as on the Mac Dev Center for download. However, this update isn’t believed to be as major as its predecessors but will come in handy to the developers anyways. Apple believes its new OSX will be a major improvement over the previous and will greatly improve the OSX’s market share. A new seed for Safari 6.1 is also made available for developers.
The war between Mac and Windows is a never ending one, especially because of being heated up equally by both the sides. But, the actual statistical studies has some really bad news for one of the side here. Recent analysis show that Mac OS X has even dropped below the Microsoft’s Windows 8, in the total market share.
Windows 8 was lagging behind the Mac OS X in market share at the start of the month August by about 1%. The situation today seems to be the opposite as Mac OS X now lags behind Windows 8. The three different versions of the Mac OS X sum up to provide a total of 6.72% market share compared with the 7.4% share held by Microsoft’s Windows 8.
