Windows 10: Win 7 and XP are the biggest losers with Windows 10's rapid growth
The word I used before was 'skins'. Microsoft should offer a gallery of 'skins' to choose from, even emulate (not plain copy, of course) Google and Apple 'skins' and get converts not only from previous Windows OSs but also from other camps

Horses are also the biggest losers since the invention of cheap cars.
Ships are also a lot slower than flying -- so what's new there either.
I'm not sure what your post is meant to say -- an older system will usually always be superceeded by a newer one.
So PC Master Race is cutting into w7? OEM's are finally being released just before the Holidays. Hmm tablet or crappy OEM laptop, or spend big bucks: surface, ipad, a kazzilion android options.
The OEM's should help out. But I do not personally see movement in the enterprise realm. And the tablet market is fierce. And there, people get comfortable and resist changing to a new OS.
Duplicate post (sorry )
But what's wrong with following the pace of decline of conventional systems (especially from the standpoint of following business trends). In the audio world, when CDs became established, I followed the trends of declining cassette and LP sales with great interest. Buying habits of cassettes for example didn't show nearly as much rapid decline for the first decade as vinyl.
So perhaps (as an example), someone might want to see if the free upgrade process to Windows 10 kills off the market share of Windows 7 faster than the remaining Windows XP user base. See what I mean? It's a valid observation.

According to Ed Bott ...
According to Ed Bott, W7 has taken minimal "damage" to its user base.
From the article comments:

Interesting that almost all share seems to have come from Windows 7? Not much change in the Win8 no.

@Mac_PC_FenceSitter That's not true at all. Calculate the drop as a percentage of the original number and you will see the flight from XP, Vista, and 8 has been staggering. A drop of about one-third, compared to a drop of about 10 percent for Windows 7. The fact that Windows 7 has the largest share means it also has the largest population of potential upgraders.
And a lot of Government Agencies are going to be pleased when Windows 10 turns their hard drives raw or keeps rearranging desktops every time you turn the monitor off.
I love the fact that there are bugs that still exist since Windows 7 that are present in Windows 10.
Yes, businesses are ready to adopt 10 and get rid of what already works.
I know IT guys in the Government that refuse to leave 7 and go to 8 much less 10. And they are in charge of yea or nay when it comes to adoption of patches, drivers or newer OS's.
First off, Does RST work with Windows 10?
I can install it and open it, I just don't see the Accelerate option

installed a 60GB SSD that I want to use Intel's RST for SSD caching

The above is a few paragraphs down into Ed Bott's article, but for me is the real purpose of letting us know what's next.
