We are just a month or two away from the public release of Windows 10 19H1 update and sadly Windows 10 October 2018 update is still not the dominant version of Windows 10. According to AdDuplex data for the month of February, Windows 10 October Update is way behind its predecessor, managing only 21.2 percent share.
However, if you consider the number with the last month, the jump is definitely significant.
Although down from 80.2 percent to 71.6, the Windows 10 April 2018 Update is still the number one in terms of usage share. The Fall Creators Update usage share also fell down to 3.7 percent while the Creators Update and versions older than this hold 3.2 percent share.
Considering how big of a mess the Windows 10 October Update rollout was, the AdDuplex data should not raise eyebrows. And it took Microsoft almost two months to fix the Windows 10 October bug.
The story might not be all rosy in the hardware side but it is definitely better than the software. Surface devices are doing pretty well with Microsoft’s latest generation of Surface hardware (Surface Book 2, Surface Go, Surface Pro 6) all gaining market share rapidly.
