    No net new users on desktop in a year o_o So much for the argument that while the desktop marketshare is flat to decreasing the number of people is still growing.

      The number HAS been growing over time, so that argument is correct. Being flat this time doesn’t mean it hasn’t grown over time.

        According to that report it hasn’t grown in the last year since it says desktop users is flat since the same time last year, not marketshare.

        • jayjam

          The point was that it has been growing over time. The argument that the numbers were still growing was still valid. Only this particular quarter is flat, but it remains to be seen if this is a trend or just temporary. The previous trend was growth, so the argument used back the was, again, valid.

            No, it says the number is since the end of Q2 2011, as in the same time last year.

          • jayjam

            Yes, your point being? That’s not the discussion. The discussion is your claim that the argument that the number of people was still growing is not valid. But it was. It is only this quarter that has been flat compared to the previous year, and that’s just one quarter which is not enough to establish a trend.

            No, in these kind of financial reports it doesn’t mean that this quarter they weren’t growing but in the same quarter last year they were. It’s representative of a whole year, not just quarter and it’s not talking about rate of growth in individual quarters – but the growth since Q2 2011. The difference in number of users between Q2 2011 and Q2 2012 is 0, or not enough to mention.

          • jayjam

            Actually, the number shows the number of users at the end of the quarter. And the point is that there has always been actual growth over time. One flat quarter does not mean that previous growth was not real, nor does it mean that this flat quarter represents a trend.
