    Hi Ed

    I think the ever so slight raise in Windows 7/8.1 may be due to a few like me who have gone through the pain of going back. Windows 10 forced downloads of store apps (in my opinion turning Windows 10 into adware) was just a step too far, I'm very suspicious of any company that decides how your hard drive should be filled without your consent. I'm now playing a waiting game see where it goes.

    Given that all new PC's now come with Windows 10 I find the steadiness of Windows 7/8.1 very telling

    I Must say it's refreshing to be back on Windows 7, looks nicer, plays nicer it's just nice.

    I could not agree more. I wish you could uninstall every Metro app, it's unfortunate that some are welded in ...

    For once the NetMarketShare and USA Government Analytics seem to show the same thing, although the 1% drop in XP usage this month is as artefactual as the 0.5% rise reported by NetMarketShare concerning the July figures.

    Windows 10 rate of uptake is slowing now the free Upgrade is perceived to be over, and Windows 7 and 8.1 are showing a corresponding slowing rate of decline - may be due to reversion to prior OS once the digital entitlement/license has been obtained for Windows 10 for that PC.

    The rates of decline for XP and Vista are now steeper than they have been lately, although it will take some sales data from OEMs, MS and official outlets to determine how this is made up from corporate or domestic repurposing or new PC sales.

    Since the beginning of the year, the overall change from July to August is much less than any other previous pair of months:
