So long period Windows 7 users are taking to stop using this program, but things now changed finally as they are beginning to drop the operating system in favour of newer versions.
This trend is reflected in the latest data from NetMarketShare, which shows that the adoption of Windows 10 continues to increase as more Windows 7 users heed Microsoft’s warning regarding the operating system’s impending loss of support.
Windows 10 first overtook Windows 7 in terms of market share in December 2018, despite its release over three years earlier in June 2015.
This shows the extremely slow uptake of the software by Windows users, which is especially dismal compared to the rapid adoption of new software versions by Mac and iOS users.
Windows 7 has now finally started to lose larger chunks of market share, however, making way for the mass adoption of Windows 10.
While history shows that users are slow to give up on older Windows operating systems, Microsoft has announced that it will discontinue extended support for Windows 7 in January 2020.
This means that users who insist on remaining with the shelved operating system will no longer receive critical security and quality-of-life updates.
Mainstream support for the original version of Windows 7 ended on 9 April 2013, while mainstream support for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 ended on 13 January 2015.
It will take a long time before the operating system fades into obscurity, though.
