Microsoft Windows 11’s Growth Rate Slowed Down in May 2023

The monthly progress report for Windows has recently been released by StatCounter, an analyst company. The report for May 2023 highlighted the market share of Windows, including Windows 7, 8, 10, and the latest one, Windows 11.

As per the analysis, currently Windows 10 is leading the chart with almost seventy-two percent (or 71.9% to be exact) market share after it gained 0.5 points. However, the latest Windows version, which is Windows 11, was found to be far behind Windows 10. Windows 11 held a share of around 23 percent after losing 0.16 points last month.

Several factors may have contributed to the slowdown in Windows 11’s growth rate. Firstly, the initial surge of early adopters and tech enthusiasts who eagerly upgraded to the new operating system has likely subsided. This early wave of adopters tends to be more proactive and open to change, while the general public may take a more cautious approach.

Additionally, some users may be reluctant to upgrade to Windows 11 due to compatibility issues. Unlike previous versions of Windows, Windows 11 has stricter hardware requirements, which means older devices may not be able to run the new OS smoothly. This limitation could deter some users from making the switch.

Moreover, the ongoing chip shortage affecting the tech industry has resulted in supply constraints for new computers. As a result, many individuals and businesses may be holding off on purchasing new devices, which consequently slows down the adoption of Windows 11.Ever since it was announced that those who were using Windows 7 wouldn’t be able to receive the latest security updates, it has lost around 0.17 points with a share of 3.6 percent. Whereas Windows 8 and 8.1 were found to be at the bottom with a share of around 0.7 percent and 0.3 percent, respectively. It was also revealed that almost 0.3 percent of the users had Windows XP on their systems.

Despite the temporary setback, Windows 11 remains a significant update with new features and enhancements. As more users become aware of the benefits and as the hardware landscape evolves, it is likely that Windows 11’s growth rate will regain momentum.
