Windows 11 Market Share Remains Unchanged Despite Launch Of Its 23H2 Variant

A new report from Statcounter is putting on display some interesting findings linked to Windows 11.

Despite the launch of its 23H2 variant, the market share for the operating system continues to stay unchanged with surprisingly no growth.

It’s astonishing because as per the findings, every fourth Windows computer that's linked to the internet makes use of Windows 11.

Just last month, we did witness Windows 11 losing a tiny fraction of the entire user base. To be more specific, it went from 26.6% to 26.5%.

Windows 10 is all set to reach its end in just two years from today. This has therefore left customers with no choice but to slowly but surely switch from the age-old operating system to one that’s newer and more innovative.

To be more exact, it holds roughly 67.46% of the complete fraction of the user base, so when compared to the month before, which is November 2023, it’s a 0.56-point fall.

Windows 11 and its higher requirements for hardware ended up creating more notable segments in the growing market of today. And seeing the next generation of Windows arising toward the end of the year, it’s a tough call on software giant Microsoft.

Windows 12 can be rolled out and would help fellow arch rivals of the industry to sell a greater number of devices or stop them from a further breakdown by staying glued to the brand it is right now.

As per the latest findings on this front, the firm is yet to be sure of what it wants next. So many older and now-dead variants of Windows still exist and people are not willing to let go, just yet. They still have their limited number of loyal fans still stuck to it.

Windows 7 for instance stands at 3.34% while Windows 8 stands at just 1.66% while for Windows XP it’s at 0.64%. The latter is shocking considering it’s been a decade since Microsoft bid farewell by stopping support on that end.

Windows 10 hopes to join in on the ranks by the year 2025 but the software giant will enable users to attain two more years of security updates that are actually a paid extension. Sounds like an enticing enough ordeal to us, what about you?

In the same way, regular clients would similarly join the Extended Security Initiative. For now, no details about how much money would be charged on that front but the end of support for Windows 10 will surely become a problem. After all, no matter what the price on offer would be, paid updates would be looked down upon.

We’ll keep you updated with more information on this front if there are any updates. But you can still get more information in regards to the findings and stats by visiting Statcounter’s official page.
