AdDuplex has published their report for July, revealing how well various versions of Windows 10 are scoring. The report has finally brought some good news for the latest Windows 10 May 2019 update.
As you can see in the above image, The Windows 10 May 2019 Update usage share now stands at 11.4 percent — more than five percent gain in usage share since last month.
Windows 10 April 2018 Update(1803) is still on top with 53.7 percent of usage share, down from 58 percent last month. Windows 10 October 2018 Update sits right next to the April 2018 with 29.7 percent share, down from 30 percent last month.
And if you look at those numbers closely, you’ll notice that the growth that May 2019 Update witnessed, has come from the April 2018 Update only.
Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and holds 2.4 percent share, while the Windows 10 Creators along with older version hold only 2.7 percent.
While doubling of usage share is certainly good news for May 2019 Update, the slow adoption rate is a matter of concern. And if the usage share of the May Update increases at a similar rate, it’d take another three to four months to take over the usage share of more than a year old April 2018 Update.
Note, the data is based on more than 100,000 PCs surveyed, therefore, it never paints the whole picture — the actual data might be a lot different from that of the AdDuplex.
