windows 10 v2004 market share

The most recent AdDuplex September 2020 report shows that the adoption rate of the Windows May 2020 Update is slowly taking momentum.

The Windows 10 November 2019 Update is the king among the OS versions with a 34.5% usage share. Windows 10 May Update (v2004) comes seconds, while the May 2019 Update (v1903) comes third, with a 25.7% adoption rate.

Compared to August 2020, the May build has added nearly 10% to its user base. 

That being said, we can notice quite an interest in the latest Windows build, which will probably become more popular in the future. It seems that users tend to migrate to v2004 rather than to v1909 since the numbers have changed significantly for the top 2nd and 3rd poitions only.

The Windows OS versions that are still in use, according to the graphs, are the updates Windows rolled out in October and August 2018, each taking up 1.9% of the PCs, followed by the Creators Update 1703, with a 1% usage share.

Around 150,000 Windows 10 PCs using the Microsoft Store apps running AdDuplex  SDK v.2 and higher were considered for this study. PCs that don’s use the Microsoft Store are not included, so the actual numbers might actually vary.

Microsoft is close to launching the next major update in October 2020, which they have already been rolling out automatically for Insider users who are in the Beta Channel. The new release will include improvements to the Chromium-based Edge browser, as well as updates to the Start menu, taskbar, and notifications.
