AdDuplex report for February 2018.

This month, we look at the Fall Creators Update numbers in anticipation of the next Windows 10 update.

Windows 10 PC OS Versions Worldwide

Fall Creators Update has reached 85% of PCs.

Windows 10 PC OS Version History

Two months ago FCU jumped up by 30%, last month by about 20% and now it added another 10%. The growth is obviously slowing down as the next update is imminent.

Note: we don't have the data for the initial rollout of the first update to Windows 10 (1511, also known as Threshold 2). So it's a straight line from 0 to the first data point we have on August 22nd, 2016.

Fall Creators Update by Country

In some countries (Canada, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, etc.) FCU has over 90% market share. In other countries (China, India, and others) it's still in the 60% range. But the majority is around the global 85% mark.

Surface Models

The new Surface Pro continues to grow and is now third, while Surface Laptop is still stuck at 2% and doesn't seem to be going anywhere.
