Microsoft has been very hit or miss with its recent Windows OS releases, but Windows 10 is off to a strong start with its adoption. If you want evidence, look no further than the fact that 57.7% of computers still run Windows 7, an OS that was released in 2009. Or consider the fact that a whopping 12.1% of computers still run on Windows XP, which was released in 2001. That’s nearly 15 years ago! With the release of Windows 10, Microsoft is seeing some positive numbers. It already has 5.2% of computer market share after one month of release, which is a 1% increase over Windows 7 and a 4% increase over Windows 8 in that same period. A helpful factor is that Windows 10 is free for Windows 7 and Windows 8 users, which is likely a reason for the fast adoption rate. If Windows 10 continues at this pace then it could be the next operating system to finally take over the market share from Windows 7.
