    Windows 7, 8.1 Start Losing Users As the World's Moving to Windows 10


    Windows 10 is available as a free upgrade to users on Windows 7 and 8.1, and there's no doubt that Microsoft expects the new OS to kill off its predecessors, as everyone would take advantage of this offer and install the new software.

    In the first month after its debut, Windows 10 indeed convinced some users to upgrade, but for the moment, the impact it has on the market share of both Windows 7 and 8.1 is quite minimal, with statistics showing that somewhere between 2 and 3 percent of the users on these two platforms installed the new one.
    A few hours ago, we highlighted August 2015 market share data provided by StatCounter, which shows that Windows 10 is still well behind Windows 7, and now NetApplications says pretty much the same thing, but with an in-depth look at how the previous OS releases performed last month.
    Windows 7, the king

    First and foremost, Windows 7 is the number one operating system on the desktop with 57.67 percent, while Windows XP is the runner-up with 12.14 percent. Windows 8.1 is third with 11.39 percent, followed by Windows 10 with 5.21 percent.

    Hmm.. If the NSA really wanted to get any of your information they can and they don't need MS to get the job done.

    Hum, kind of like going to war against a well armed 7 and 8.1 with a knife. Maybe MS should help those of us with driver problems; can't install Win 10 due to some mysterious driver.

    What people? Majority do not even know about privacy, only like 1% of 1% following tech websites.
    Privacy triangle would not be accepted by anyone. Max privacy = min functionality and min easy-to-use.

    Safe, safe about what? I'm not worried since I don't send any important information via email.

    Windows 7 and Windows 10

    Did Win8 ever have any users?

    Windows 7 rocks and I am hoping Windows 10 will eventually get to rock too. There are already ways to stop the M$ people peeking into our private computer lives. Hopefully M$ will realize these 'features' are counter-productive and we will end up with a great Win10 version.
