For Microsoft, it is still very eager to see the rapid increase in the update rate of Windows 11, but judging from the current progress, it is still relatively fast.
The latest data from research firm AdDuplex shows that Windows 11 is now installed on 19.3% of PCs, and 0.3% of PCs are running the Insider version, and its growth rate has not slowed down.
Broken down by detailed version, Windows 10’s share is now:
Windows 10 21H2 — 21%
Windows 10 21H1 — 27.5%
Windows 10 20H2 — 17.9%
Windows 10 1903 — 1.3%
Windows 10 1909 — 2.5%
Windows 10 2004 — 7.9%
Windows 10 1809 (and earlier) — 2.4%
As the most stable version of Windows 10 at present, 20H2 has many users. Before Microsoft brought the 21H2 update, it was also for these users to get the free upgrade of Windows 11 for free.
Microsoft has also hinted that if those eligible Windows 10 users do not update in a timely manner, they may face paying for upgrades next.
