No one is using Windows 11 anymore. Despite the fact that the official program has been available for more than a year, users are continually finding new reasons to adore Windows 11.
Statcounter stats show that only 15.44% of Windows systems are running Windows 11, which is a very low adoption rate.
Contrarily, more than 70% of people are still using Windows 10, and despite the fact that the firm hasn’t officially supported Windows 7 since January 2020, only under 10% of devices continue to have a loyal user base.
No one is using Windows 11: consideration of all platforms
Windows maintains its long-standing domination of the desktop market relative to rivals, with close to 80% of the market share. Following 15% is Apple’s OS X, followed by the free software Linux with a little under 3%.
When taking into account operating systems from all platforms, including mobile devices, a different picture emerges. With a market share of over 40%, Google’s Android OS triumphs here, followed by Windows at about 30% and iOS at about 20%. Following that, OS X and Linux declined to about 6% and 1%, respectively.
Microsoft touted Windows 11 as being more secure than earlier versions of its flagship operating system, including the need that machines to have Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 chips installed, which perform cryptographic operations and have physical security features.
The sluggish adoption of Windows 11 is due in part to this and other onerous restrictions. Only the most modern processors are compatible with the new OS; yet, according to a recent study by IT management software Lansweeper, over 11 million PCs across 60,000 enterprises lacked the necessary CPUs to install it.
Businesses often wait roughly 18 months following a new operating system’s release before investing in new hardware. As long as Windows 10 continues to be as capable as it is now, there is now even less reason to cut that lead time due to the current state of the economy.
