Windows 10 Overtakes Windows XP


Source of Graphic: https://www.netmarketshare.com/operating-system-market-share.aspx?qprid=10&qpcustomd=0

An event 15 years in the making... Windows 10 now has roughly 11.85% of the PC market, compared to 11.42% still running Windows XP, turning 15 years old this year.

It should be noted that Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP almost 2 years ago. As a result, Windows XP has become a huge target for hackers, viruses, and the like.

Windows 10 is now the 2nd widest used OS on PCs. However, this is not surprising given Microsoft's aggressive strategy to get people to update those old PCs. See article below.

Now that Microsoft is forcibly downloading Windows 10 onto unsuspecting Windows 7 and 8.1 users’ PCs there’s going to be a lot of unhappy customers faced with a new OS they never asked for nor wanted.
