Windows 10 has finally taken over Windows 7 for use. The operating system, which was first released in 2015, now has more users than Windows 7, according to Net Market Share's latest report.
Windows 10 was after Windows 7, no doubt one of the most popular versions of Windows to date. However, according to Net Market Share, Windows 10 has a usage share of 39.22% and beats Windows 7s 36.90% user share. It's from December 2018.
The performance is a big one for Redmond. Nevertheless, the software giant has a great year ahead of itself, and that 36.90% use of Windows 7 is a big part of the entire Windows user base. The majority of Window 7 users continue to be corporate customers, and Microsoft must continue to push these companies too slowly to switch to Windows 10. It's not an easy job, certainly, but considering Windows 10 is now the most popular version of Windows, The whole shift happens over time.
Microsoft hoped for the first time on Windows 10 to get a billion active units within the first two / three year release, and of course it did not end. Although the Windows 10 usage rocked when the OS was first launched, it's no secret that growth has slowed since the end of the free upgrade offer for older versions of Windows. We still can't overlook the fact that Microsoft's Windows 10 has been steadily growing over the years, and the company's Windows as a service plan has worked pretty well.
But now Windows 10 is virtually the most popular operating system in the world, with macOS (as a whole) being used by 9.61% of users and Linux claims that 2.09% will Microsoft's dominance in the desktop world continue to do the company relevant in the consumer world.
The company has a great year ahead – with a huge Windows 10 update expected in the first half of the year, and another in the other. Microsoft has focused on creativity and productivity in Windows 10 for the latest features, and the company's focus is likely to continue to be productive this year. Congratulations New Year!
