Has Windows 10 Adoption Plateaued?

Has Windows 10 Adoption Plateaued?

When Windows 10 was released in late July, the initial adoption numbers were quite impressive. The operating system was downloaded about 14,000,000 times in the first 24 hours. Wow! The entire first week went well making Windows 10 the fastest adopted version of Windows ever… but can the OS sustain this? Apparently not. Recent statistics show the adoption rates are slowing significantly.

Still, the operating system has racked up an impressive 53,000,000 downloads in just 3 weeks. This trounces the adoption rate of any previous Windows-based OS. Unfortunately, Windows 7 still holds 53.5% of the PC market. Will the adoption of Windows 10 continue… or has it plateaued.
