Windows 10 market share

Netmarketshare’s September data is out, and it shows an increase in Windows 10 web usage and a decrease in Windows 7 and other Windows versions.

Windows usage statistics

Windows 10 features a 39.3% market share which is less than 5% off the 43.99% market share of Windows 7. If we take into consideration the current trend, it looks like Windows 10 should overtake Windows 7 by the end of this year. If the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update manages to attract new users, then Microsoft’s latest OS will finally overtake the good old Windows 7.

On the other hand, there’s also some bad news. Windows lost the crown to Android as Android became the most used computing platform back in April.

There is also a resurgence in Windows and Mac usage over the last couple of months all this at the expense of iOS and Android. The reasons for this are not known, but one of them could be the fact that people have been spending much more time at home on their laptops because fall is here and students came back to class.

The battle between Windows 7 and Windows 10

Lots of companies have already confirmed that they are in the process of making the switch to Windows 10 and this could boost the operating system’s needs to gain a clear desktop supremacy once and for all. Such a thing could definitely be useful to help convince developers to target UWP and the Windows Store, and this may result in a more stable and reliable desktop computing experience for all users.

Place your bets now: do you think that Windows 10 will become the most popular OS in the world by the end of the year?
