Windows 10 October 2018 Update rollout may be slowing down already

AdDuplex has released its monthly report on the state of Windows collected from their network of 5000 apps running their ad plugin.

The data shows that after a healthy increase in the percentage of Windows 10 users on the October 2018 update there has been a sharp slow down in the roll-out of the OS, increasing only 5% in the month, compared to an earlier increase in 9% the month before.

The numbers suggest that the October 2018 update may not hit the majority of Windows 10 PCs before the April 2019 update starts rolling out.

It raises the prospect of users possibly jumping from the April 2018 to April 2019 update directly, which may be exactly what Microsoft is planning to avoid users being pestered for 2 major updates in the space of only a few weeks.
