Microsoft Windows 10 Becomes ‘Recommended’ Update, Picks Pace


Microsoft has been one of the biggest forces when it comes to the world of technology. The company has been around for over 40 years now, and has been coming out with some of the biggest updates in recent times.

They have managed to change our very perspective on the way we see software technology and operating systems to be, and the last year was dominated by Microsoft as the company kept coming out with something or the other about the Windows 10 OS which captivated our imagination.

However, in one major update, the Windows 10 OS has now moved beyond the realm of ordinary and has become a ‘recommended’ update for users.

The company had already announced that they intend to come out with this move in the early days of 2016, and that day is finally here, as Microsoft has now introduced the Windows 10 OS as a recommended update. It was earlier an optional one.

“As we shared in late October on the Windows Blog, we are committed to making it easy for our Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 customers to upgrade to Windows 10.

We updated the upgrade experience today to help our customers, who previously reserved their upgrade, schedule a time for their upgrade to take place,” a Microsoft spokesperson commented on the change.

This basically means that computers which have automatic updates enabled will automatically start downloading and installing the Windows 10 OS.

This might face a backlash from the users who are unaware about this change, as this might end up eating away major data from the users’ internet plans. A spike in the growth is expected to be witnessed soon.

Talking of spikes in growth, the January of 2016 has been a good month for Microsoft. The company has witnessed 2.2% growth for the Windows 10, which is the highest since the month it released.

Additionally, a new report that came out recently says that the Windows 10 OS has now moved beyond the market share of the Windows XP as well as Windows 8.1 users.

While 11.8% users are on the Windows 10 OS, XP runs on 11.4% of the machines, and Windows 8.1 on 10%.

However the latest OS from Microsoft still faces the biggest competition from the Windows 7 OS, which occupies a massive market share at 52.4%. However what is worth noting is the fact that the Windows 10 OS has grown so much in just 6 months from its release.
