    I doubt many people who value security/privacy are sticking with XP. Probably all thats left for xp are diehard fans of it & companies.

    I see no surge, just steady, linear trends - up for Windows 10, and down for all other Windows:

    2% is hardly a surge

    Depends how you look at it.
    I suspect a lot of businesses would love to have their product sales increasing at 2%/month (especially in the current economic environment).

    For the last 2 months the number of W10 installs "detected" is double the long term rate of increase (i.e. from ~1%/month to ~2%/month).
    This means it's harder to claim that it's just a one month anomaly (e.g. the 5% increase in August 2015).

    It has surpassed peak market shares of the W8 Series and Vista (the two versions of Windows pretty much universally proclaimed as the worst ever).

    Next months figures should be the interesting ones.
    Will there be a huge jump in W10 installs or will it continue climbing at its current rate?

    I also noticed that NetMarketShare quietly fixed up a typo in W10's April figures.
