Microsoft’s Windows 10 OS went on sale in late July and thanks to an aggressive push by the company, the OS is now installed on 7.94% of desktop PCs. This figure, which is growing at a steady rate, is the result of the company offering the OS as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and 8.1 users and making it easy for those users to upgrade their current install via Windows Update.
For the month of September, the figure was 6.63% and for August, 5.21%, which means the 7.94% for the month of October shows that users are adopting the OS at a sizeable rate.
Last week, Microsoft announced that they would be making the Windows 10 upgrade files a recommended update via Windows Update instead of an optional update. This change, while it will not automatically install the OS, will download the bits on to your machine unless you turn off automatic downloads and update your machine manually each month
