The latest version of Windows 10, called 2004, is now in use on 7 percent of Windows 10-based PCs out in the world, according to AdDuplex.
“[Windows 10 version 2004] enters the chart at 7 percent [usage share] after about a month on the market,” the latest AdDuplex report, which is based on a survey of almost 150,000 PCs, notes. “As was the case in the previous cycle, the most popular version of Windows 10 is not the newest and not the one before it. Right now it’s [Windows 10 version 1903], which is two cycles behind the current release at this point.”

Looking at the numbers, it appears that Windows 10 version 2004 impacted the 2019 releases—versions 1903 and 1909—about equally. Usage of Windows 10 version 1903 dipped from 48.2 percent in May to 46.2 percent this month, while usage of version 1909 dropped from 36.4 percent to 35.7 percent.
7 percent may seem slow, but that’s faster than the speed at which its real predecessor, Windows 10 version 1903, rolled out. (Remember, 1909 was just a cumulative update. After about five weeks of availability last year, Windows 10 version 1903 was only on 6.3 percent of PCs.
