Windows 10 reaches 10% as 2015 comes to a close

It has been five months since Windows 10 was released in late July and the pace at which it has been adopted surpassed that of its predecessor by quite a margin. New figures reveal that Windows 10 will soon overtake Windows 8.1.
Net Applications' figures show that Windows 10 has increased its marketshare another 1 percent since November. The pace has slightly slowed down but still hovers around one percent per month.

One in ten computers (with desktop OS) now run Windows 10 and it is expected that Windows 10 will overtake both Windows 8.1 and Windows XP within the first month in 2016. However, there's a long way still to beat the Windows 7's over 55 percent share.

All Windows operating systems still have a commanding 91.3 percent share as OS X is at 7 percents and Linux at 1.66%.

What a horrible operating system too. It's sad Microsoft can get 10% market for windows 10 by simply giving it away for free. Google start menu disappears windows 10 and you'll see what I mean by how buggy and lame it is. My friend bought one and literally after the first windows update she got the bug which is complex to repair and Microsoft has no information on how to fix it, you can only google. Returned that garbage PC and looking to buy one instead running windows 7.
