Microsoft has been unrelenting in its efforts to persuade its users to switch to Windows 11. However, a recent decline in the growth of Windows 11 users suggests that many people do not want to upgrade.
According to BetaNews, Windows 11 abruptly came to a standstill in March after a couple of months of spectacular usage growth that helped it quadruple its share.
AdDuplex, a cross-promotion platform that emphasizes the popularity and growth of both Windows 10 and 11, was mentioned by BetaNews. According to March data, Windows 11 has a five-fold fall in popularity when compared to its predecessor.
Beta wrote, “AdDuplex’s findings show that Windows 11 currently sits on 19.4 percent of PCs, up just 0.1 percentage points from where it was last month (19.3 percent). There are twice as many users running an Insider build now though (0.6 percent), which could be down to Microsoft trying out more experimental features in the Dev Channel.”
New Windows adoption has likewise fallen behind that of Windows 10.
Windows’ flaws can be attributed to a variety of factors, including stringent system requirements and the trouble of changing default settings, among others.
Given the dismal statistics, it is likely that many more people will continue with their existing versions of Windows, forcing Microsoft to employ alternative methods to persuade them to update.
