We’ve got our hands on the latest AdDuplex data for March, and fortunately, there’s some good news for Microsoft’s Windows 10. Long story short, the adoption of Microsoft’s OS has increased lately.

We’re looking at more than 90% Windows 10 systems that are currently running the latest version of Windows 10 aka release 1709 or the Fall Creators Update.

Microsoft is gearing up for the big Redstone 4 launch

Microsoft is preparing for the company’s big launch of the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update aka Windows 10 version 1803 or simply Redstone 4. Redstone 4 is expected to reach users next month, and the rollout will come in stages which will give Microsoft enough time to address potential compatibility issues.

The company seems to be doing better and better these days with its OS, and this only paves the arrival of Redstone 4 with massive success before its launch.
