    It takes longer to close up all the security holes than it does to install.

    I pity the common (average) user who gets 10 and doesn't know anything about security.
    Their PC will become a slave to Microsoft. As Mr T used to say, "I pity the fool......"

    Welcome to the 21st Century, if you're connected to the internet you are capable of being attacked, phones are supposedly much worse, especially Android ones. On top of that you've got terrorism and all kinds of diseases, it's the century of living dangerously.
    Anyway, I trust Microsoft more than I do Apple and Google, even though I'm always connected to the net by all 3.

    I think any comparisons are hard to read lets not forget that not only is Windows 10 free (at least as an upgrade), but they have been using a person current OS to advertise it in an aggressive manner.

    I suspect those figures would be very different if it was a new paid for OS.

    It may be free but unlike for example Windows 8 it is very much tied to your current hardware.

    When Windows 7 came out I was able to purchase a fully flexible retail copy at a reduced price.

    I have installed it 20 times on 2 computers. If you take, that people have to upgrade in order to do a clean setup and there are quite a few people, who installed it more than once, I would cut that number by min 2.

    Not if what they are counting is the installations via the Get Windows 10 app.

    Will windows 10 have the potential to surpass windows 7's high market share (atm).

    Considering that there won't be a Windows 11, 10's market share will surpass 7. Watch how quickly MSFT will close the OEM channels to anything but 10.
