Looks like Microsoft has an uphill task at hand. The company seems to be struggling to exceed the milestone of 700 million active Windows 10 devices, as the adoption of the OS has slowed down. Or, at least, looks like so. Redmond, however, expects the transition to the new operating system to accelerate in the coming...

It’s no big secret that Microsoft wants to see Windows 7 gone. But since support for this old OS is set to last until January 2020, the company can’t really do anything. The popular operating system was released in 2009, and that means PCs even older than this date were quickly to deploy Windows 7. They still are...

Finally! It has taken a bit of time, but Windows 10 adoption in the enterprise sector has reached 48%, which is enough to overtake the former leader, Windows 7.

The end is near! Windows 8.1 is nearing sunset, as Microsoft has officially ended mainstream support for this version of the operating system this week. It will no longer receive new features and updates. Other than security patches, of course. This development follows this month’s Patch Tuesday rollout, meaning...

What have we here! It looks like Steam users are not all that pleased with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, as Microsoft’s newest operating system recoded a massive drop last month. The gaming platform has traditionally been the fastest to adopt new versions of the OS. However, gamers at Steam have been less than...

Despite the arrival of the Fall Creators Update, Windows 10 only increased its market share by a smidgeon last month, growing its market share by less than a single percent. More specifically, the OS went from 29.09% to 29.26%. This, according to the NetMarketShare, which listed the latest version of the operating...
