Windows 10 Version 1903 Hits Double-Digit Usage Share

Usage of the latest version of Windows 10 has hit 11.4 percent this month, according to the latest data from AdDuplex.

“Windows 10 [version 1903] has gained another 5 percent [in usage] since last month and is now on 11.4 percent of more than 100,000 PCs surveyed,” the latest AdDuplex report explains. “Interestingly, almost all of this growth seems to be coming from users upgrading from [Windows 10 version 1803] as [Windows 10 version 1809] is hovering around 30 percent steadily.”

That is interesting. Last month, Windows 10 version account for just 6.3 percent of all Windows 10 usage, so this month’s gain almost represents a doubling of usage. But AdDuplex is right: Usage in Windows 10 version 1809 has barely moved. In May, it represented 31.3 percent of all Windows 10 usage out in the world, compared to 30 percent last month and 29.7 percent this month.

Meanwhile, Windows 10 version 1803 is the most frequently used version of the product. In May, this version accounted for 61.1 percent of all Windows 10 usage, but that figure dropped to 58 percent in June and then to 53.7 percent this month. The most widely-deployed version of Windows 10 so far is finally on the way down.
