    The latest data from AdDuplex shows that the Fall Creators Update is deployed to over 5 percent of Windows 10 PCs, a far more aggressive rollout than was the case with the previous feature update.

    As you may recall, AdDuplex is the largest cross-promotion network for Windows apps. AdDuplex empowers developers and publishers to promote their apps for free by helping each other. And each month it provides a glimpse at which Windows devices people are actually using.

    “Fall Creators Update has been out for a week as of this measurement, and it is already on 5.3 percent of PCs running Windows 10,” AdDuplex notes. “Anecdotally, Fall Creators Update is up to a more aggressive start than its predecessor.”

    I think this 1709 is far better than 1703, 1703 so buggy, boot so slow.

    something I don't like in 1709, that I need to delete create user via administrator to get started menu work properly.

    Start menu item can't be unpinned, it always keep going back after unpinned.

    Edge browser keep showing blank when startup page (msn/bing whatever) .. unless I change my startup home to google

    What's the overall distribution of Windows users and how many are still using Windows 7 or Windows XP?

    Such statistics are meaningless. XP users are mostly people using very old pcs (predominantly 3rd world countries).

    Windows 7 stats are heavily distorted by the corporate market which has much less incentive to upgrade but they are starting to move over now.

    In the domestic market, Windows 10 must take over from Windows 7 (figures I have seen indicate it probably has now) as all new pcs are Windows 10. As pcs die, and new generations come along, Windows 10 will surely overtake. It is inevitable.

    NetMarketShare's report at the start of October:
    Market Share October 2017 - W7 Down, Other Up

    StatCounter and analytics.usa.gov have different numbers.

    If you believe:
    • NetMarketShare - it will happen in early next year
    • StatCounter - it will happen in the next couple of months

    Thanks for the stats at post 8. I thought Win 7 was still prevalent and I'm surprised how low the Windows 8 use is.

    I'm not surprised Windows 8 numbers are so low. Most people I know avoided that. That metro interface was really off putting and I can't imagine any serious workplace would of appreciated that sort of GUI. To be honest, Windows 10 whilst being much better than 8 is not really the sort of OS most corporate environments would go for either. At my place of work and every office I visit they still run Windows 7. I know Windows 10 is unavoidable in the long run but I will always prefer Windows 7. The start menu was better, there was no edge and none of those annoying native UWP apps and no store. I'm not ever going to use classic shell or tamper with the apps etc as I don't want to cause problems in the future for updates but all of that stuff is better suited to a mobile phone, not a desktop machine. And of course Windows 7 didn't have those feature updates every 6 months which I feel most users don't want, nobody wants to dealing with a moving target so often.

    Agreed. :)

    At my TAFE, most classrooms have W10 but some rooms still have W8 (no 3rd party add-ons).
    I find them very annoying to use even after 5 years.
    The Library has W7 PCs.

    The IT people must have nightmares about keeping the machines running.
    They struggle to make the W10 PCs identical and getting software to run correctly.

    Hi,
    These large win-10 builds will always be disruptive and pretty much unpredictable as to what will happen after
    Not good for business environments
    Not really good for personal pc users either for that matter
    Who has an hour or more to waste waiting for a large build to download and install
    Then after if 10 has to roll back what damage will be done to the prior install is always a possibility

    The fall update just started to download for me I had to quickly switch my update setting to builds for business thankfully that did delay it probably only temporarily though.
    What I thought would happen is with the creators update a link would appear asking if I wanted it
    That did not happen :)
