Windows 10 reports an important growth for its user share. Microsoft’s Windows 10 customer share has increased significantly last month beating a new record since its release, as data from various statistics have revealed these days.
After just six months from its launch, Windows 10 operated on roughly 195 million computer devices, according to the newest numbers using the company’s figures. These percentages are close to the software maker’s current statement of over 200 million gadgets, made at the beginning of this year.
The leap in customer share, calculating the number of all PCs globally that work with this operating system, was a remarkably 1.9 points, second just to a 4.5-point gain earned by Windows 10 in August 2015, the first month of accessibility.
January’s improvement was nearly double compared to December’s reports. While tech experts do not talk about a clear cause related to Microsoft’s platform changes in client share, one certain reason for Windows 10’s wide adoption would be coming from recently bought new gadgets that were introduced last month.
Windows 10 represented almost 12 percent of all laptop or computer operating systems and ran 12.9% of all Microsoft Windows gadgets. The second figure is bigger because the company’s platform powered 91% of all devices totaled by tech experts.
The 13% user share of Microsoft’s Windows 10 indicates that the latest OS version has not replaced the older Windows 8 and 8.1 editions as the most-popular form of Microsoft platform. The combined customer share of the previous OS editions in Jan represented 14% of gadgets working on Windows.
Another database also revealed that MS Windows 10’s improved in Jan. The StatCounter that monitors global usage numbers placed Windows 10’s share at 13.5% for Dec, a 1.5-point gain. This was the biggest single-month leap since Sept, when StatCounter measured Windows 10’s share at 2.2 percentage points.
The new operating system’s growth puts the new platform a bit ahead of the rate that Microsoft’s Windows 7 shown after the initial year on the global market, as these reports have demonstrated. The previous operating system had gathered a 12.5% share considering all Windows desktops through its six first months.
With approximately 200 thousand computers running on MS Windows 10, the company has reached 1/5 of its self-proclaimed objective of installing the platform on 1 billion gadgets by 2018. A few months ago, Microsoft said that it would automatically provide its Windows 10 update to most users and small companies working with Windows 7 or 8.1 desktops in the next weeks.
