Windows 10 Finally More Popular Than Windows 7 Worldwide: StatCounter
During the same period, Windows 7 managed to hit 41.86 percent market share.
Larger organizations in particular are still hesitant to migrate because of various concerns, most often the automatic update cadence that Microsoft introduced in Windows 10, Mangan said. However, that figure includes tablets, phones, and Xbox consoles.
However, one can't deny the fact that the latest Windows operating system is definitely getting some traction against Windows 7. It doesn't handle high-resolution displays (or multiple-monitors) very well, there's no built-in support for things like fingerprint readers or Windows Hello facial recognition, and trying to use a touchscreen on something running Windows 7 could be considered a form of cruel and unusual punishment.

"Microsoft will be hoping that it can replace it a lot quicker than XP, launched in August 2001, which fell below five per cent usage worldwide only in June 2017". Future progress will depend on a flat PC market and commercial upgrades that enterprises may put off for another couple of years.
