The accelerated approach to the end of the Windows 7 support period was exactly what Microsoft needed to make Windows 10 a widely accepted operating system.
New data shows that the latest version of Microsoft's operating system finally aggressively improves its market share.
According to analysis by March NetMarketShare, Windows 10 increased its market share to 43.62% (from 40.30% in February). That means that in just one month, Windows 10 improved its market share by 3.32%. At the same time, Windows 7 fell from 38.41% to 36.52% in February. The difference between Windows 10 and Windows 7 is now more than seven percent in favor of Micosoft's latest operating system.
New statistics are definitely good news for Microsoft, especially if it is known that the company has trouble persuading users to give up Windows 7 and switch to Windows 10. Fortunately for Microsoft, this transition will help accelerate support for Windows 7 , which is announced for January 2020.
Meanwhile, the company is making the final preparations before releasing a new update of Windows 10 (version 1903, probably called the April 2019 Update), which could further increase the acceptance of the operating system worldwide.
