The adoption rate of Windows 10 has come to a halt, according to numbers reported by market analysis company Netmarketshare. While Microsoft’s marketing department uses every opportunity to boast about the number of devices running Windows 10, the worldwide market share of Windows PC grew with only 0.06%.

Once this all done and said…follows the next statement…

This tells us once the devices are done with the numbers we now see the real numbers. Windows 7 still will hold the lead and Microsoft has done a dis-service to Windows 10 adoption by their own actions and debacle.

In other words, it looks like many of Windows 10’s users have gone back to Windows 7. That seems like a huge surprise to… literally nobody.

If my wife’s laptop is anything to go buy after the anniversary update  she would like to go back to windows 8.1.  Since the update she gets random problems like “Windows is low on memory  etc”  and the PC has to be rebooted.  Something there seems to have a memory leak .  The laptop has 8 Gig of RAM installed.

Even with new computers, the retailers know this well, such as the following example of the laptops filtered by OS on BT Business Direct’s website:

In fact, they have more laptops with Windows 7 Pro than all other other OS’s combined.

At work where we use Windows 10, the biggest problem we faced is having to migrate the computers to SSDs as Windows 10 has got incredibly disk intensive, especially when checking for and installing updates, similar to how Windows Vista behaved. It wouldn’t surprise me if Microsoft has SSDs on all its PCs and doesn’t realise the headache they’re causing for anyone still using hard disks for their Windows 10 OS.

So it looks like Microsoft is going to face a repeat of the Windows XP problem, but this time with getting people to upgrade from their trusty Windows 7…

It’s obvious why the growth has stopped. The petri dish has run out of space so the virus can’t grow any bigger… :bigsmile:
