For a new version of Microsoft's operating system that just began shipping to consumers just a few months ago, Microsoft Windows 7 is doing quite well, according to new figures release by Web analytics firm Net Applications.

Simply on day-to-day usage, Windows 7 passed the 10 percent mark on Jan. 31, while on a monthly average basis, it captured 7.51 percent, Net Applications said.

Still, Windows XP continues to lead the pack with a 66.31 percent market share in January, followed by Windows Vista (17.39 percent). Apple's Mac OS X 10.5 came in at No. 4 for January, at 2.36 percent, followed by Mac OS X 10.6 (1.79 percent) and Linux at 1.02 percent.
