Windows 11 Sees Underwhelming Growth Rate, Fails to Cross 20% Adoption Among Users

The launch of Windows 11 was heavily marketed by Microsoft because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up ensuring people that their product quality was going to improve. Windows 10 was a lot better than Windows 8, but in spite of the fact that this is the case Microsoft was still starting to develop a bit of a reputation as an obsolete company although CEO Satya Nadella has done a lot to reverse that sentiment.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Windows 11 has been showing a pretty sluggish rate of growth these past few months, as per Adduplex data. It barely showed any significant growth at all last month, and its total rate of adoption among Windows users still sits at under 20%, or 19.7% to be precise. Around 35% of users are still preferring the November 2021 update to Windows 10, but that might be because they are slow to upgrade to a new system because they’re used to the one that they have.

One thing to note here is that Windows 11 has not yet been fully rolled out. Microsoft plans to finish the rollout by this summer, so there is still a lot of potential for growth with all things having been considered and taken into account. Microsoft has also claimed that adoption rates for Windows 11 are higher than those of Windows 10 during the early stages of that product’s launch, and the future of the OS might become clearer by the summer.

Microsoft is also planning to roll out Windows 11 for numerous other devices which will help speed up its expansion and growth. Windows is a rather unique product in that it doesn’t have many competitors, and this gives Microsoft the luxury of rolling out product launches over extended periods of time. However, there’s no such thing as an unassailable company, and the underwhelming growth of Windows 11 so far might give rise to new competitors who can offer an alternative.
