What methodology do they use to compute that market share? Isn't hard
to believe they could miss millons of "pirated" copies of Windows 95
running on old, non-networked computers on the third world.

I was a VMS user, and I haven't seen one for years and years (not
saying that it is not used, only not frequently). OTOH, the last
Windows 95 I saw in actual, daily use was in a client of mine, and
they retired the computer less than a year ago (and did so kicking and
screaming, I should add). It was an original, pre-SP1 Windows 95 that
had never been upgraded. FWIW, Emacs did not run on it.
