AdDuplex has released its Windows data for the month of October and it reveals that Windows 11 has already been installed on 5.1% of computers running Windows 10 or Windows 11. It also said that 90% of Windows 10/11 PCs are now on versions of Windows released in either 2020 or 2021 which means users are likely up-to-date on security patches and are experiencing the latest features Windows has to offer.
This insightful data is collected from around 5,000 apps in the Windows Store which use the AdDuplex SDK v.2 or higher. This month's data was based on information from around 60,000 computers which, hopefully, means it’s representative of the wider Windows 10/11 install base.
Last month, AdDuplex revealed that Windows 11 had already been installed on 1.3% of computers that had the Microsoft Store which was interesting considering it hadn’t even been officially released at the time. Microsoft has been phasing the rollout of Windows 11 too so if you think 5% is a low figure, you need to factor in the staggered approach too. By slowly rolling out Windows 11, Microsoft can nip any issues in the bud so more people are pleased with their experience of Windows 11.
According to BleepingComputer, Microsoft is now issuing an update to Windows 10 users that installs the PC Health Check utility. This will make it easier for the firm to help users ensure their machine is compatible with Windows 11 and if it’s not, it will let them know if they can do anything to address the problem making it Windows 11 compatible.
