Microsoft, on its official blog, talked about how well Windows 10 has worked over the last two years. It also talked about some of its big achievements.
There are now more than 1.4 billion people who use Windows 10 and 11 every month. In addition, the amount of time spent on Windows was found to have risen by 10% over pre-pandemic levels.
People spent 40% more time on Windows 11 PCs than they did on Windows 10. However, Microsoft’s new operating system isn’t the only reason this number has gone up.
Canalys, a global technology market analyst firm, told Microsoft that there were more than 340 million PCs shipped in 2021. This is 27% more than in 2019.
Users took the free upgrade to Microsoft 11 twice as often as they took the free upgrade to Windows 10 over Windows 8.
Microsoft also said that Windows 11 has the best quality and most satisfied users of any Windows ever. However, the company doesn’t say that Windows 11 was only available to a small group of people who already had Windows 10, while almost everyone could get the upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 10.
Despite a bumpy start, Microsoft’s numbers have been good. If you have an AMD processor, there were a lot of problems with Windows 11 that people reported, but they mostly got fixed later on.
The company says that Windows 11 is to blame for a threefold increase in traffic to the Microsoft Store. Most of this could be because of better Store policies in 2021.
Windows 11 upgrades will also soon be available in their final phase, Microsoft says. This is a lot faster than the company’s original plan of mid-2022.
