    That would depend on what their function is and also preference is as an operating system. They will need to take into consideration the fact that whatever OS it is, their employees will need to be trained on it. So, what is more cost effective? The need to train people on a OS widely used or barely used.

    It depends on companies man power or experts who are more enhanced with OS. Also cost/ licensing is a matter. So, on which OS are you an expert?

    I would guess the Windows platform is probably the most common. Then you have the issue as to is it Win7, Win8 or Win10? WE use Win7 here on most PC's. There are a few other version and they were upgraded due to specific user needs. Then I would think LINUX/UNIX. It depends on where in a company you are looking as well. Networking people may prefer LINUX based applications where office people want Windows... So no easy answer.

    The best bet would be Microsoft, and it is "user" friendly. Plus, if you look at he number of computers that have MS on it vice Linux, it is heavily over rated.

    The answer to "What is the most used operating system today for companies?" doesn't depend on anything.

    The OP is not asking what is the recommended OS, or the best OS or something similar.

    The most used one is Windows (if we can group together the different editions/versions).

    Why are you asking this query. Is this a part of survey. What is the purpose behind this query. Are you doing a research. Please come back with a more clear view.

    The answer to that question is going vary from company to company. Nor can it be completely answered either because of the number of machines that are legacy systems that have to run. Probably the Microsoft O/S are the most prevalent for the PC, but if you are considering tablets and smartphones then you also have to consider what O/S they are using.
