Since I'm a new member I can't post a new thread, but I figured this was the best related thread to mention this News article:
Source: ComputerWorldWindows 10's usage share growth flatlines
The growth march of Windows 10 slowed this week as gains stalled starting on Monday, according to new data from an Irish analytics firm.
Windows 10's usage share, nearly 6.6% on Sunday, dropped to 5.8% Monday, then slipped to 5.7% Wednesday, numbers from StatCounter showed. Week-over-week increases also weakened, falling from healthy gains in both percentage and absolute terms the week before to the lowest since the July 29 rollout of the new operating system.
On Tuesday, Windows 10's week-over-week increase fell under 20% for the first time, and its absolute increase in user share slipped under the one-percentage-point bar, also for the first time.
Like people said already, that is not a surprise, they can't be growing 20% a month forever, thats practically impossible.
Probably market share will grow for W10 in the following weeks or months, but this will depend on how MS dodges all the drama around the OS...
Or maybe some of the gurus here will come up with a workaround for those of us using the Home version (please!!!).
So you say, but as a long time Insider, I'm in the group I described -- curious about the changes.As a long time Insider I must be in the first group!
Bet you will see a huge Windows 10 growth spike in the summer of 2016 as the free upgrade offer nears expiration.
I do not like the direction Microsoft is going in and neither will any business. Most businesses having recently upgraded to 7 from XP won't be moving any time soon and frankly I can see 7 as the last proper OS Microsoft made being extended until Microsoft come to their senses and release a serious OS instead of the toy OS ten is.
Like I say I have thought long and hard and tested Ten and still do and it is not for me even free.
