Windows 11 isn’t gaining popularity the way Microsoft expected it to be, according to AdDuplex report

With the release of Windows 11 in October 2021, Microsoft has seen a 3.2% spike back in February, but since then the progress slowed down. AdDuplex, a cross-promotion network for Windows apps, releases a report on market shares and Windows versions for June. The report says that the market share of Windows 11 is still under 25%. Earlier this year, only 3.4% of personal computers were upgraded from Windows 10, which shows the slow rate of the latest OS migration.

The previous version of Windows 10 represents 38.2% of the market share and the 21H1 update stands at 23.9%. This highlights the most share of Windows 10 and its popularity too. However, the current version of Windows is not growing at a pace though it gains 3.4% in the market in two months, which is not a big achievement. AdDuplex points out that when windows 11 was launched, people rushed towards its installation on their devices, but since then, the adoption ceases or has been very minimal. Either way, Microsoft needs to work hard to make its latest version a dominating OS on every desktop. So, the question is why users have not updated their devices to the new operating system?


The reasons could be many that lead to the slow adoption of Windows 11. The hardware of Windows 11 is hampered in its adoption as a large number of Windows 10 devices do not well-suited to the new Operating system. The company has made changes to the hardware requirements while keeping a great focus on security, with Secure Boot and other arguable updates. Maybe because of this, people won’t prefer to upgrade their pc. Anyway, there are amazing technologies, for example, the DirectStorage update that could help in increasing the adoption of Windows 11 as using DirectStorage, games can be loaded in a few seconds. All game assets will automatically store on the PC's hard drive upon loading it, including, sounds, graphics, character models, etc.

Other than this, features like rounded window corners, Snap Layouts, and Android App capability are users' favorites. We can’t think of the pace of Windows 11 adoption after Microsoft launches Windows 10 support three years later. There will be a boom in Windows 11 adoption once it has been done.
