Windows 11 is experiencing disappointing growth

It seems that, after the successful release of Windows 11 over the past year and stable growth in the first months of 2022, the speed of operating system distribution has decreased significantly.

Evidence of this situation is provided by the analytical company AdDuplex, which monitors the level of distribution of different versions of software platforms and regularly publishes the results, and analyzes market research.

According to AdDuplex, Windows 11’s market share in March was almost unchanged from the February results.

At the same time, the Windows 10 21H2 version recorded some growth during the same period, and in March it became the most popular version of the operating system.

The report indicates that Windows 11 achieved a market share of 19.4%(in February it was 19.3%).

Despite a small increase, Windows 11 is still the third most popular.

Ahead of it are Windows 10 21H2(up 28.5%) and Windows 10 21H1(down from 27.5% to 26.5%).

Of course, the significant increase in market share of Windows 10 21H2 was prompted by the cessation of support for the Windows 10 20H2 version, which ends in May.

When it comes to the reasons for the slower acceptance of Windows 11, there are certainly the minimum system requirements required to install the operating system, which not all computers meet.

In addition, upgrading to Windows 11 is optional, which also doesn’t help with OS distribution.
