Whether they simply got bored with its predecessor, or maybe just for the thrill of a new experience, more and more users have already upgraded to Windows 11.

The latest operating system has become much more stable and it’s free, so there’s really nothing to lose in taking it for a test drive, considering you can always go back to Windows 10 if it doesn’t work out.

The Redmond-based tech giant’s previous OS will still receive support until 2025, so there’s really no rush if you’re not that keen on making major changes.

The Windows 11 adoption rate continues to grow

The adoption rate of the Windows 11 OS continued its rise in February 2022, according to information made public by AdDuplex.

You might also want to know that the usage share of Windows 10 version 21H2 has also increased from 12.1% in January, to 21% this month.

As far as Windows 11 is concerned, it jumped from 16.1% of all tracked systems in January 2022 to 19.3% of all systems in February 2022.

Of course, a large number of devices still run on obsolete versions of Windows 10, that no longer receive support from Microsoft.

For example, version 2004 of Windows 10 still powers 7.9% of all systems, according to the chart, even though it reached its end of support in June 2021.

On the off chance you were asking yourself just how accurate AdDuplex’s numbers are, know that the information is provided by about 5000 Microsoft Store applications that use the company’s SDK.

Other companies that specialize in this type of analysis also report jumps in Windows 11’s adoption rate as well.
