    Those changes seem very odd, have they changed the way they calculate things ?
    Or has there been hundreds of thousands of people dumping XP in favor of 8.x in a single month.

    MKV "support"? What will actually be different, .mkv associated with Windows Media Player by default?

    It seems the sudden drop was an anomaly.
    http://www.netmarketshare.com/
    NetMarketShare has recently shown a large drop in Windows XP share from September to October. This drop was primarily caused by a major change in the network of sites we have in China. A group of large Chinese publishers with a very large number of visitors per day had audiences heavily skewed towards Windows XP (nearly 100% XP). In researching the nature of the sites, we determined they were not appropriate for our network. We removed those publishers ourselves, which caused the shift since Chinese traffic is weighted higher due to lower coverage. The current data set is more accurate than in the past due to this
