Ever since the free upgrade offer to Windows 10 ended, the growth of the OS has slumped drastically. While the operating system got a huge boost in the first year of its launch, it hasnít been able to keep the growth rate steady in the last several months. Windows 10 is still, however, gaining decent market share every month as users slowly start moving from older versions of Windows, notably Windows 7.

With Windows 7 still being the top desktop operating system in the world and claiming nearly 49% of the market, there is no doubt that Windows 10ís will get a potential boost once the extended support for Windows 7 ends in early 2020. According to the latest data from Net Market Share, Windows 10 now claims 27.63% of the market, up from 26.80% in June. Windows 7ís market share, on the other hand, went down to 48.91% from 49.04%. Put simply, the latest data from Net Market Share doesnít really show anything dramatically different, and the changes are pretty usual at this point.



Microsoft is expecting to see Windows 10 grow even further once businesses and large organizations start moving to the new operating system from Redmond. Back in May, Windows 10 was only powering 50 million business PCs worldwide which is probably a lot lower than Microsoftís expectations. Thatíll likely change in a few years time as we get closer to the end of Windows 7ís extended support, however.

With more than 85% businesses expected to migrate to Windows 10 by the end of this year and Microsoftís new Microsoft 365 bundle that offers Office, Windows 10 and EMS in a subscription model, it might not be much longer until Windows 10 takes the throne for the most popular desktop operating system in the world.
