Windows 10’s Biggest Problem… Windows 7

The latest statistics from www.NetMarketShare.com show Windows 10 is steadily gaining ground and now accounts for over 24% of desktop operating systems on the Internet. This is a big change from one year ago when the OS was struggling to get 10%. While 2009’s Windows 7 has shown a decrease in the past 12 months, it still holds 48.3% of the desktop market. With Microsoft’s aggressive marketing of Windows 10, one would expect to see a much sharper decrease.

In the same time frame, Windows XP usage has dropped slightly from 10.93% to 9.07% and Windows 8.1 has decreased from 10.3% to 6.9%. This shows us that Windows 10 is increasing in popularity and the others are dwindling, but it’s biggest hurdle is still Windows 7. It seems a large percentage of people simply don’t want to upgrade.
