  • [Windows 10] Breaks the Limit  Now Outsold Others In the Market Data
  • Windows 10 Takes The Lead In Market Share



Windows 10 has had quite an interesting and incredible journey so far. Although Windows 7 has been the father of desktop operating system for years. 

 Windows 10 Breaks the Limit  Now Outsold Other Windows In the Market Data

Just last month, for the past 3 years, the latest and the first free version of Windows finally managed to overtake the numbers of Windows 7. As Microsoft gets ready to stop supporting Windows 7 by 2020, it is expected we will see businesses finally make the big move or risk being left unsupported.

According to Netmarketshare, however, reveal that both the Windows 7 and Windows 10 have experienced a rise in the last month. Windows 10 leads the market now with 40.90% market share, followed by Windows 7 at 37.19% and Windows 8.1 at 4.34%. This is a slight increase from last month’s numbers that showed Windows 10 at 39.22% and Windows 7 at 36.90%.


Though keep in mind that these numbers aren’t official or entirely accurate, but in the absence of official stats from Microsoft, they do offer us a look at how different desktop versions are being adopted. According to the analytics company, they collects “data from the browsers of site visitors to their exclusive on-demand network of analytics and social bookmarking products.”
  • The data is compiled from approximately 100 million valid sessions per month, widely distributed over thousands of websites. The information published is an aggregation of the data from this network of hosted websites. In addition, we classify 430+ referral sources identified as search engines. Aggregate traffic referrals from these engines are summarized and reported monthly. The statistics for search engines include both organic and sponsored referrals.”
This data may have been collected from extensive sources, but it does leave a large chunk of enterprise machines that are never connected to the internet. While there are definitely more Windows 7 machines running, it is likely that many of them will finally be upgraded to Windows 10 anytime.

What do you think about this? Are you still on Windows 7? Tell us in the comments below.
