After a flying start, the adoption rate of Windows 11 slowed down severely in February 2022. In any case, this is what the latest data from the research firm AdDupleX reveals. During the last 30 days, the market share of Microsoft’s latest OS has increased by only 0.01%.
In February 2022, Microsoft proudly announced that Windows 11 had 19.4% market share, making it the 3rd most used Windows OS in the world. Since the end of 2021, Microsoft’s latest operating system has experienced explosive growth and moreover the Redmond firm has ensured that Windows 11 enjoys an unprecedented popularity rating.
Indeed and according to data from Microsoft, users under Windows 11 spend on average 40% more time on their PC than on their machine equipped with Windows 10. However, all good things must come to an end. According to the latest data from research firm AdDuplex, Windows 11 installs plummeted in March 2022.
Windows 11 growth stalls
Thus and over the last 30 days, Windows 11 market share increased by only… 0.0.1%. We are far from the 3.5% gained between January and February 2022. In other words, Windows 11 PDMs hardly changed in March 2022, and the OS maintains its 3rd position in the Windows OS ranking the most used.
Windows 10 21H2 remains the undisputed number one, with 28.5% market share, followed by Windows 10 21H1 with 26.5%. On the other hand, it should be pointed out that the number of members at Windows Insider, the Windows beta program, increased slightly, with user share rising from 0.3% to 0.6%. An increase probably due to the multiple updates and the many improvements made by Microsoft in these preview versions, such as the redesign of the context menu or that of copy-paste, much more practical than usual.
Despite this loss of speed, Microsoft says Windows 11 rollout has entered final stage. “The Windows 11 upgrade offer is entering its final phase and it’s ready for wide rollout to eligible devices. Since the launch of Windows 11 in October 2021, we have seen strong demand and preference for Windows 11, with people upgrading their eligible PCs twice as fast as Windows 10″, assured the American company.
