Windows 10 Finally Becomes Most Popular Desktop OS

Windows 10 Finally Becomes Most Popular Desktop OS

Oh, and if you'd care to invest in the upcoming Azure-Powered Windows Virtual Desktop then those Windows 7 updates will be yours as part of the deal.

Windows 10 taking over as the world's most popular OS comes at a crucial time for Microsoft.

According to Net MarketShare Windows 10's share rose to 39.22% in December, while Windows 7's fell down to 36.90%.

Even though these figures are not official, this is still a big achievement for Microsoft.

Captain and Tennille singer Daryl Dragon dies at 76
Dragon met his future wife and collaborator Tennille in 1971, when she hired him to play piano for a musical called Mother Earth. Daryl Dragon , one half of popular '70s duo The Captain & Tennille, died Wednesday, according to his publicist Harlan Boll.

During its Build conference previous year, Microsoft bragged that Windows 10 had reached over 700 million active devices, an impressive milestone though still short of the elusive (so far) 1 billion devices goal. Considered as the biggest-ever update to Microsoft's PC software, Windows 10 came with a refreshed UI and a range of smart features. Apple's Mac OS X 10.14 Mac OS X 10.14 is running on 4.54% of devices, according to the report. Although the latest OS version has surpassed Windows 7 three years after its launch, indicates how popular Windows 7 has been and still continues to be among users.

Steam's statistics tell a similar story, and the gaming platform states that 63.79% of users are running Windows 10 (64 bit) as of December 2018. One year later, it admitted that prediction was overly optimistic-partly because of the demise of the Windows Phone.

Microsoft hasn't confirmed the bug, but the company did say in the release notes of the most recent preview build of Windows 10 19H1 that it resolved a problem affecting FLAC support in the operating system. Microsoft already confirmed previous year that its Windows 10 OS version has been installed on 700 million devices including PCs, Xbox, tablets and phones.
