AdDuplex has published their report for June, revealing how well various versions of Windows 10 are scoring. The report has brought bad news for the latest Windows 10 May  2019 update.

As you can see in the above image, Windows 10 April 2018 Update(1803) is still on top with 58 percent of usage share, down from 61.1 percent. Windows 10 October 2018 Update sits right next to the April 2018 with 30 percent share, down from 31.3 percent last month. Surprisingly, recently released Windows 10 May 2019 Update is not off to a good start, frankly, its performance is quite similar to how October 2018 Update performed. The May 2019 Update, with a gain of only 5 percent stands at 6.3 percent, and if you recall, the figure matches with that of the October 2018 Update after a month of its release.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and holds 2.5 percent share, while the Windows 10 Creators and older version combined holds only 2.9 percent.

The slow adoption rate of Windows 10 May 2019 Update is may be due to the fact that Microsoft has been very cautious with the update roll-out especially after the October 2018 Update fiasco. As a result, many users even with decent hardware didn’t receive the update to this date.

Nevertheless, it’d be interesting to see whether the Windows 10 May 2019 Update is able to pick up the speed it needs to make it to the top beating April 2018 Update.
