Back in January, Windows 10 claimed 11.85% of market share and in just 30 days, gained about 1% more. Netmarketshare reported that Microsoft’s latest OS had reached 24% market share in November, a slight increase from 23.72%.

Windows 10 is slowly gaining more market share but it doesn’t seem to convince Windows 7 users to upgrade, as the latter continues to be the dominant OS on PCs. According to the numbers provided by Netmarketshare, Windows 7 had a 47.17% market share, followed by Windows 10 with 23.72%, Windows XP with 8.63%, Windows 8.1 with 8.01%, Windows 8 with 1.96%, Windows Vista with 1.10%, Windows NT with 0.34%, and Windows 2000 and Windows 98 each with 0.01%.

Meanwhile, Windows 10 reached 24% of market share and this is mostly because there are many Windows 8.1 users who decided to ditch this OS and upgrade because it keeps some of the touch and tablet features originally created for Windows 8

The Anniversary Update of Windows 10 arrived on August 2 and Insiders are now testing out builds of the forthcoming Creators Update slated to launch in spring 2017.
