Windows 10 Takes Over Windows 7

Windows 10 Takes Over Windows 7

Interestingly, Windows' market share as a whole declined slightly between November and December, falling from 87.03 percent to 86.2 percent.

The next cumulative updates for Windows 10 are projected to go live on January 8 as part of this month's Patch Tuesday cycle, and naturally, version 1809 will be one of those getting patches.

If you have enabled Windows 10's built-in administrator account, and upgrade from build 1803 to 1809 - that is, the April 2018 Update to the October 2018 update - you will find that a bug has been introduced that disables the account. Considered as the biggest-ever update to Microsoft's PC software, Windows 10 came with a refreshed UI and a range of smart features.

In the middle of past year, Microsoft said that Windows 10 was running on almost 700 million devices each month. At the beginning of the year, market share sat at 34.29 and 42.39 percent for Windows 10 and Windows 7, respectively.

Having opened the floodgates to the Windows 10 October 2018 Update as 2018 drew to a close, the gang at Redmond could have been forgiven for expecting a jump from the flatlining usage of the update.

By comparison, 26.08% of users on Steam are on Windows 7 (64 bit).

While Microsoft initially predicted that one billion devices would be using Windows 10 by summer 2018, in recent years it stepped back from that pledge, after it became clear it would not hit those figures, largely due to Windows' failure to gain traction in the mobile phone market.

The stats tracker analyses usage across thousands of websites, from around 100 million sessions each month. Apple's Mac OS X 10.14 Mac OS X 10.14 is running on 4.54% of devices, according to the report.

December 2018 marked the first time that Windows 10 overtook Windows 7 in terms of desktop OS market share.
