It's still only 14%


1. Windows 8 costs money, Mavericks is free.
2. The Windows userbase swamps the OS X userbase, even that 14% will be more than all OS X users combined.
3. Microsoft have a totally different support lifecycle than Apple. Microsoft support their older OSs for a long time after their successor is released. Apple don't.

These statistics they use to show off are all relative.
