At least 100 million computers still use Windows 7

Windows 7 Update

Windows 7 lost its extended support from Microsoft on January 14, 2020, and after this period only business users could pay a higher price to continue receiving OS support.

According to analyst firm StatCounter Global Stats, Windows 7 had a market share of 17.6 percent in November. This is an increase of almost one percent compared to October. Windows 10 held 75% of the market during that period.

NetMarketShare records similar statistics, and according to the company, Windows 7 had a market share of 21% in October while Windows 10 had a 74 percent market share.

According to analyzes, gamers still prefer newer versions of Windows. The latest Steam Survey analysis shows that 89% of users came from the Windows 10 platform, while only five percent of them came from Windows 7.

Prices for continuing to receive updates for Windows 7 Enterprise and Windows 7 Pro will increase in the coming months, which could lead to a reduction in the use of the outdated platform.
