Windows 10 share is even shrinking

Despite the near termination of support for Windows 7, users are in no hurry to follow Microsoft's advice and move to a more modern Windows 10. This is evidenced by the latest statistics on the use of computer operating systems in the world, provided by NetMarketShare.

Launched in 2009, Windows 7 over the past month has almost not lost in market share and continues to firmly hold second place on a global scale. Its share fell from 26.94% in October to 26.86% in November. In the first place is Windows 10. It is interesting that its share also does not grow, but decreases - from 54.30% in October to 53.33% in November. 

All other operating systems occupy a much smaller share. Thus, macOS 10.14, which is in third place in the world, covers 4.62%. Then comes Windows 8.1 with 3.42% and macOS 10.15 with 3.93%. Linux is in eighth place with 1.16%, behind even Windows XP with 1.62%. 

For regular users, extended support for Windows 7 ends January 14, 2020. Microsoft now warns users about the imminent death of Windows 7 and offers to switch to Windows 10.

Used the loophole for years

Microsoft plans to end support for the Windows 7 operating system from January 14, 2020. According to the company's official policy, all Windows 7 users who want to upgrade to Windows 10 now have to pay $ 120. However, in practice, many manage to upgrade for free.

As enthusiasts and lucky ones report, if you upgrade your computer using the Media Creation Tool, then you can activate the installation of the new Windows 10 with the existing key without any problems. 

The system works only for already activated Windows 7, 8 or 8.1, only for “In-Place Updates” and does not work with a clean installation of Windows 10. That is, for a free update after downloading the Media Creation Tool, you must select the option “Update this computer now”, not Create installation media. 

In 2015, Microsoft promised a free upgrade for all “legitimate” Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 for free for the first year from the system’s release. Officially, the free upgrade period ended in December 2017.

On the Reddit social media site, a self-proclaimed Microsoft employee confirmed that a free upgrade to Windows 10 is still available. He stated that the entire “free upgrade” was an advertising ploy, and Microsoft did not even bother to fix a loophole that had been widely used for years. However, he warned that caution must be exercised, since with a “clean installation” the loophole will not work.
