As per usual, Windows 10’s market share experienced a slight bump last month. According to the latest report from Net Market Share, Windows 10 now claims 26.28% of the market. That’s just about 1% more than March when Windows 10 claimed 25.36% of the market. Windows 7, on the other hand, saw a pretty decent growth in March but its market share is decreasing once again. Back in March, the OS claimed 49.42% of the market, but now that’s down to 48.5%.
Here are the shares of the other OSs:
Windows 10’s growth rate is pretty steady at the moment, although it’s still far from taking over Windows 7. That will likely start to look way different once Windows 7’s mainstream support ends in a few years time. A lot of organizations are expected to deploy Windows 10 on their systems by late 2017, so Windows 10’s market share will likely see a huge growth in the coming months.
Microsoft won’t really have to worry about their customers using outdated versions of Windows once Windows 10 is on the majority of computers in the world. That’s because of how Microsoft delivers updates to Windows 10, which is working flawlessly for the software giant — for instance, the latest major Windows 10 update that started rolling out on mid-April is already powering nearly 10% of Windows 10 PCs.
