Windows 10 Pro is now dominating the majority of the Windows 10 PCs used for business across the western Europe market for the first time according to a new report from Context, which collects sales and pricing data for supply chains. The analyst reports Windows 10 Pro accounted for 57% of business PCs in the region last month.

Microsoft was able to breathe a sigh of relief towards the end of 2017 as Windows 10 Pro started to gain traction in the commercial segment. In January 2017, Windows 10 Pro’s market share continued to soar in western Europe to represent more than half of that market, up 9% from December last year. This means more enterprise customers are making the switch to the operating system.

Marie-Christine Pygott, senior analyst at Context, explained:

Now eighteen months into its life cycle, this latest rise has brought adoption rates for Windows 10 Pro closer to those reached by its most popular predecessor after a similar time span.

Here is the breakdown of the sales distribution for Windows 10 Pro in the business sector during the last month:

  • UK – 69%
  • Germany – 43%
  • France – 54%
  • Italy – 61%
  • Spain – 54%
  • Sweden – 38%
  • Switzerland – 50%
  • Netherlands – 50%
  • Belgium – 51%
  • Austria – 54%
  • Poland – 53%

Microsoft now claims the operating system now runs on more than 400 million PCs, though most of those users comprise the consumer segment. With the Windows 10 Creators Update just around the corner, it will be interesting to see how businesses embrace the OS with improved user interface and other features.
