As you know the window is an operating system which is mostly used by beginners to expert level persons, since March Windows 10 run on over 800 million devices, Microsoft is now claiming that 900 million devices will be running its current operating system and expect to reach its target in 2020.
Microsoft already had planning to get Windows 10 running on a billion devices in upcoming years, but the company soon extended its timeline because Windows Phone wasn’t working out. Now, it looks like Microsoft will achieve its 1 billion goals with Windows 10 within five years of the operating system’s release.
According to Myerson, Achieving its goal won’t just mean getting Windows 10 on new devices — it’ll be getting older devices off of older operating systems. Companies have built their IT infrastructure around old versions of Windows, and they aren’t often eager to change tools that people need to use every single day. To make all of this work for developers we know this needs to be widely adopted.
This graph showing that window 7 still more popular and used by the user where Windows 8.1 and Windows XP both are used by less than 10% users.
While you might imagine Linux or macOS might gain ground with the prospect of Windows 7 bowing out this hasn’t been the case. Windows started the 12month period last September with 87.56 shares of the desktop/laptop operating system market and ended it with 87.89%. macOS share also increased from 9.52% to 9.68% Linux meanwhile declined from 2.21% to 1.72% and Chrome share was negligible and almost stationary – starting at a share of 0.33% and ending at 0.36%. Of course, the picture is very different in the world of mobile and embedded devices but as far as the desktop is concerned Windows still reigns supreme.
