Just over a month ago, Apple hosted its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. One of the biggest announcements was the unveiling of OS X Yosemite, the latest incarnation of the company's computer operating system. Currently in beta mode, the new platform is an overhaul in both performance and appearance.
In a recent blog post for Computerworld, the site's resident "Apple Holic" Jonny Evans examined Yosemite and makes the case that it makes Mac "sexy all over again."
Evans pointed to Web usage data that has been collected by Chitika to show how popular Yosemite has been since its release. In just three days, users on the platform generated 0.15 percent of North American OS X web traffic. By comparison, it took the last version, Mavericks, 30 days to achieve 0.05 percent share. At the one month mark, Yosemite is responsible for 0.2 percent market share.
While the study only looks at Web usage, the results are telling. So much so that Chitika's Andrew Waber told Evans that: "Yosemite will capture a significant portion of the North American Mac OS X user base in a comparatively short amount of time."
The fast adoption rates are expected to keep growing. Waber predicts that Yosemite will bypass Mavericks, which had already surpassed its predecessor Mountain Lion. Because of this, there is little reason to think that Apple won't experience faster adoption rates after the OS goes public in a few months.
With the help of an Apple support service, any company will be able to easily adopt Yosemite and work it into company operations.
