Maybe people are listening to Microsoft's demand that they ditch Windows XP.

According to metrics company Net Applications, Windows XP's user share plunged to 33.7% of all personal computers in August, a record-setting one-month fall of 3.5 percentage points.

When XP's share of only those PCs that are powered by Windows was calculated, the decline was slightly sharper, from 40.6% of all Windows systems in July to 36.9% in August, a drop of 3.7 percentage points.
