20H2 is Now On Almost 9 Percent of Windows 10 PCs

The latest AdDuplex report shows that Windows 10 version 20H2 is now running on almost 9 percent of Windows 10-based PCs in its first full month of availability.

“[Windows 10 version 20H2] is on close to 9 percent of Windows 10 PCs right now,” AdDuplex notes, adding that the speed of the “Windows 10 20H2 rollout seems to be on par with the previous few releases.” Almost 100,000 Windows 10 PCs were surveyed to obtain this data.

As you may recall, Windows 10 version 20H2 only accounted for 1.7 percent of all Windows 10-based PCs in last month’s report, but the update had only been available for 6 days.

The bigger news last month was that Windows 10 version 2004 had catapulted into first place with almost 38 percent usage share. Oddly, that hasn’t changed month-over-month: 2004 still accounts for almost 38 percent usage this month, too. Oddly, usage of Windows 10 version 1909 grew this month to 36.4 percent, up from 32.4 percent last month.

    <p>LTSC for life. Can't wait the next one. I have no idea how many buggy releases of Windows 10 Microsoft released since the late 2018 build.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#595808">In reply to kb923689:</a></em></blockquote><p>Best comment ever. If you have to use Windows 10, and you can get hold of it, LTSC is the way to go. There should be another one in 2021 I believe (3 year cycle). No bloat, no telemetry, no Cortana, no store, no ads, no Bing, no forced updates. Almost what a proper OS should be!</p>

    <p>Why do we still use AdDuplex for this data? </p><p>I'm 100% sure than none of the PCs at my workplace will be included in that data. </p><p><br></p><p>Isn't there a more accurate and reliable source?</p>

      I use AdDuplex because they survey a reasonable number of real PCs that are really being used out in the world. And no, I’m not aware of any other source of data on specific versions of Windows, let alone a more accurate source. But I find AdDuplex to be both reliable and accurate, and something that can be used for apples to apples comparisons from month to month.

    <p>For whatever reason, my Thinkpad X1C would still be on 1909 if I hadn't forcibly installed 2020H2 using the Upgrade Assistant. No idea why it never received 2004.</p><p><br></p><p>My work laptop is still on Creators Update (which isn't even LTSC) and all previous organizational upgrades of Windows have required being in the office to hand over devices for reimaging, so let's hope they sort that out :)</p>

    <p>What is the deal with this update? I've been seeing this message about it on Windows Update for a long time now. </p><p>I guess I don't understand why Microsoft has this update out there if it says it's not ready yet to install? Is there something I'm missing here? Thanks.</p>
