Windows 10 Version 1803 Continues Its Upward Climb

Posted on August 23, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Windows 10 with 5 Comments

Given its explosive early growth, it will come as no surprise that Windows 10 version 1803 has made only small usage gains in the past month.

“The April 2018 Update [Windows 10 version 1803] was already prevalent on the PCs last month,” the most recent AdDuplex report notes. “So, it’s no surprise that it only gained a few extra percentage points this month.”

Windows 10 version 1803 now accounts for 87 percent of all Windows 10 versions out in the wild. Version 1709 still has 7.8 percent usage, while all previous versions are in the very low single digits.

I assume that Windows 10 version 1803 will soon surpass the usage high of 92.1 percent, which the previous version, 1709, hit when version 1803 was delayed a month. But it only has a few months to do so, as its successor, Windows 10 version 1809, is expected as soon as next month.

    Discussing which 10 build has which percentage seems like a way of avoiding the elephant in the room which is the embarrassingly high percentage of Windows users still on 7 and 8.1.

    I seem to remember Paul talking about how reckless it was to push 1803 and how he had a lot of reports saying that it was causing issues.

    Can we have an update on that?

    If this update went better than Paul expected, it is good to know.

    We're still on 1703 here at work. We seem to stay a year behind or more.

    Look at that fragmentation. Windows 10 failed.
