    Windows 10 passes 20% share in the U.S.

    Here's a little something for the curious about how 10 is progressing!

    Windows 10 passes 20% share in the U.S.

    Windows 10 powered 20% of the Windows devices that reached U.S. government websites this month. With about four months left in Microsoft's free upgrade offer, only the Redmond, Wash., company knows if that's enough.

    One in five Windows-powered devices steered to a host of U.S. government websites in March ran Windows 10, according to preliminary data.

    For the first time, Windows 10 accounted for more than one-fifth of the visits to sites tracked by the Digital Analytics Program (DAP), which mines traffic to more than 4,000 websites on over 400 different domains maintained by U.S. government agencies, such as the Internal Revenue Service and the National Weather Service.

    The bulk of the visits to DAP websites originate in the U.S.

    Through Thursday, Windows 10 recorded 20.2% of visits in March by Windows PCs, smartphones and tablets. That was a one-percentage point increase from February and more than two percentage points above January's.

    Although Microsoft irregularly trumpets the number of devices running Windows 10 -- the last time was nearly three months ago -- data from DAP and metrics vendors like Net Applications and StatCounter are the only publicly available sources for monitoring Windows 10 adoption.

    But these external measurements are rough at best.

    A case in point: Because overall traffic to DAP websites plummets on weekends -- total visits by Windows devices on Saturday and Sunday are typically less than half that of a weekday -- Windows 10 may be unrepresented, as more Windows PCs used during the work week are business machines, which predominantly run the corporate standard, Windows 7.

    I wonder what the percentage is between those who chose to upgrade and those who purchased new devices with Windows 10. Either way Win 10 is on a upward swing. :)

    I did both here! When the old 7 laptop upgraded to 10 quit I had to go out and buy a new 10 one! :) Of course I was running 10 so many times on two desktops and the VMs on those too! "Busy 10s"!

    Think that was bad wait until you Double Duty in action!

    A lot of that was based on how MS made a major change to the 10 app no longer seeing the Reserve your copy of 10 option to Immediate upgrade or delayed upgrade where you could only hit the X or Task manager to get out of it! That came at the start of February there.

    Actually in restrospect to 7 you have to see how 20% is next to nothing in comparison to how well 7 flew off of the shelves back in 2009! The 20% shows progress for 10 but not anywhere what 7 had seen following the 8 Flop! 8.1 rushed to replace 8 kept a percentage in the progressive upgrade lines and with most still running 7 a worry about 10 being a bad taste in the mouth that 8 brought would tend to slow the pace a bit. And this is what MS had to take a serious look at when deciding to bring on the Free Upgrade to 10 deal.
