How many people are using Windows 7 in UK schools?

imageI just had a look at the statistics for visitors to this blog, for UK Schools. It was prompted by the website sharing with me that about a quarter of their visitors are using Windows 7. The answer appears to be over a quarter now. The table is the last fortnight’s visitors.

Although I don’t believe that it means that a quarter of all school computers are running Windows 7, it is representative of network managers. And they’re probably already planning whether they are going to roll out Windows 7 to the rest of the school at Easter or in the summer.

    Hi Ray,

    Prompted by this post I got a report on the usage of RMs Kaleidos Learning Platform for the last week of January 2010. Here is the breakdown of users ‘ top 10’ by both OS and ‘ top 7’ by browser.

    I think it shows that most pupils are still using XP but that there has been a rapid move to IE8.

    Great blog keep it up.
