    How about a 3 month perspective. Considering W-10 is Free for most and the heavy handed tactics MS is using to capture the upgrade I don't think the W-10 conversion rate is anything to be crowing about. 1 Billion W-10 users by 2017, not at this rate.

    Hope this Nokia forum guy was fired from the company together with the recently fired CEO.



    They just do not understand the market. This incompetent approach is suitable for some poor countries where Nokia dominates with its low cost phones but not for the developed world where market share of Apple is constantly growing all these years.



    Sic transit gloria mundi? Hell yes

  5. When you look at the percentage of 7 users you can see why MS is offering the free upgrade including 7 along with 8 and 8.1 to grab up that market share! That would put 10 about 65% if the larger percentage of 7 users do upgrade. The end result would see 10 as the version/OS that took the one of the highest percentages of all time.

  7. I doubt it will take long to get much further then only 10% despite the hold outs! You will note which two OSs are at the bottom of the totem pole for sure! 8 tanked naturally as well as the fruit company!

    Windows 10 Approaches 8% Of PC Market Share

    A missing part of the equation are businesses using Windows 7. They are reluctant to upgrade till they know the operating system is working properly or stable. Same thing happened when Vista came out, no business wanted to move off XP. They did later move to 7 once it proved to be stable.*Think

  9. Actually a good number of businesses did upgrade to Vista almost immediately. The problem was they were still using antiquated systems with 512mb, 625mb, 750mb, or maybe a pair of 512s while even with XP Windows didn't actually smooth out for the 32bit until you got over 1gb with 2gb making a noticeable difference. The end result was many backtracking to XP or hearing the bad rep of a "Bloated OS".

    To top that off you couldn't even install the 64bit if you had more then 2.5gb-3gb of memory installed and had to pull some out to drop to 2gb. SP1 was needed badly to correct the inaccuracy of reporting how much actual memory was installed on a system. SP2 was what actually smoothed Vista out there however. With 7 the WinMin kernel since improved on to see less memory used by system processes despite 10's obviously apparently larger then Vista even size for dual platform sees the 1gb minimum.

    I wonder if they count people who are still on W7 or 8.1 but have W10 installed on VMware, for example. I like playing with W10 but there's no way I'd give up W7 for it.
     
  11. That reminds me I have to get the 10565 Insider build running on another VM! Had to restore a system image of 7 when suddenly the av software with a life time license quit working out of the blue showing "expired"!

    That came up out of nowhere without any option to uninstall or even found in the Programs & Features where after going into the system reg to track down and removed all entries the next fresh install showed everything was up to date and still saw the same stall! An image made back in June saw the av working where I disabled the automatic updates for a bit and then checked again and the latest definitions suddenly went on without a problem.

    Back in 2013 an update knocked out the internet connection when it added a new network filter causing some concern and that wasn't with 8, 8.1, or certainly not 10 but on 7. Not one problem seen on 10 however! I still have a need to keep 7 running here while as for upgrading to a newer version 10 is a much better choice then the last two! The Virtual Desktops or equivalent to the Linux Multiple Desktops option is finally being seen in 10 along with the return of the updated Start menu. On top you would be replacing a now 6yrs. old version of Windows where XP was when Vista was finally out.

    If you are a Windows fan you may want to upgrade the OS every 3yrs. when MS keeps things on the schedule. Being that Vista is being retired soon and newer hardwares will eventually offer no support for 7 you will need to keep some old pc running until 2020 to be able to continue on until all support is dropped. 7 by then will be like 95 or 98SE would be now! Ancient History! And believe me I still love how 7 turned out but am not frowning at what 10 is bringing in either.
