According to recent data provided by Microsoft, Windows 10 is already running on more than 110 million devices, but the company has even bigger targets for the upcoming years. And now fresh data suggests that its market share is slowly increasing.

Analytics firm Net Market Share say Windows 10 now claims 9% of the worldwide desktop market share as of November 2015. One month ago, Windows 10 claimed a 7.94% market share, so it increased by slightly more than 1% during one month. Windows 7 is still the undisputed leader. Here’s how the whole picture looks like:

  • Windows 7 – 56.11% (up from 55.71%)
  • Windows 8.1: 11.15% (up from 10.68%)
  • Windows XP: 10.59% (down from 11.68%)
  • Windows 10: 9% (up from 7.94%)
  • Windows 8: 2.88% (up from 2.54%)
  • OS X 10.11: 2.66% (up from 2.18%)
  • OS X 10.10: 2.45% (down from 3.45%)
  • Linux: 1.62% (up from 1.57%)

Some interesting things to observe here is that Windows 7 has increased by almost 1%, Windows XP dropped, but Windows 8.1 has actually increased, and my opinion is that many upgraded first to 8.1 before jumping to Windows 10, so this might change in the near future.

Windows XP is the first ‘victim’ for Windows 10, to be followed by 8.1, but the real battle will be against Windows 7, which is still preferred by hundreds of millions of users across the world.
