The software support of Windows 7, one of the most successful operating systems of Microsoft, will end in 2020. Users who do not want to be deprived of Windows software support have begun to migrate to Windows 10. According to the latest data, the transition from Windows 7 to Windows 10, seems to have gained robust speed lately.
The new study of Net Applications, which is one of the reliable sources of Internet statistics. Shows that the transition of Windows 7 users to Windows 10 is accelerating. According to the latest data, the share of Windows 7 software in the personal computer market has decreased by 3.6%. This seems to be one of the biggest declines in operating system history.
Microsoft users continue to move away from the Windows 7 operating system. While the decline in operating system market share is gradually accelerating. In the past few months, the Windows 7 operating system was still in a strong position when compared to the Windows 10 operating system. In June 2019, the Windows 7 operating system had a share of 35.38%, while the Windows 10 operating system had a 45.7% share. A month later, the share of the Windows 7 operating system decreased to 31.83%. While the share of the Windows 10 operating system increased to a share of 48.86%. According to ComputerWorld, this transition was the second major decline in the personal computer market that showed the Windows 7 operating system on a monthly basis.
Migration to Windows 10 may be accelerated because Microsoft warns Windows 7 users that operating system support will end. Nevertheless, the Windows 7 operating system has kept its share constant over the years and has shown to the world that it is the favorite operating system of a large mass of users. This month, the share of the Windows 7 operating system in the Windows market is quite significant, according to ComputerWorld, since the operating system was two years old, which has not been seen since 2011.
Unofficially, roughly 61 million people leave the Windows 7 operating system. And 51 million people in July, the Windows 10 operating system is said to have transitioned. It is also an important statistic because the Windows 10 operating system did not exceed the Windows 7 operating system in its overall market share until January this year.
A similar situation has already occurred among Windows operating systems. The Windows XP operating system was still more popular in 2014 than the Windows 7 operating system and the Windows 8 operating system. The Windows 7 operating system still has a share of 31.83%. But many users are still switching to the Windows 10 operating system. We will see how long the Windows 7 operating system will continue to be popular.
Note: Microsoft will cease support for Windows 7 in January 2020.
