In 2015 after introducing windows 10, Microsoft used to announce adoption figures for the operating system every once in a while, obviously in an attempt to show that people were indeed embracing it and taking advantage of the free upgrade offer.

Last year, however, Microsoft slowed down the cadence of revealing Windows 10 adoption stats, with the company itself confirming that it could miss the 1 billion devices running Windows 10 target set for the end of FY2017.

In a keynote at the developer day earlier this week, Windows boss Terry Myerson said something that made many people raise their eyebrows: Windows 10 is running on 400 million devices, which is the exact same figure that the company announced back in September 2016.

Does this mean that Terry came up with outdated figures or is Windows 10 adoption really stagnating? Hard to say, but judging from the data provided to us by third-party research firms, Windows 10 is growing at a rather slow pace these days and although there’s a good chance that it exceeded the 400 million devices threshold, it’s still somewhere in that region.

Windows 10’s slow growth

“We now have over 400 million users all around the world, and this is consumers, people in schools, people in the enterprise. They’re doing all kinds of new things. PC gaming is taking off. 6 billion hour of PC gaming just in the last quarter,” Terry Myerson said in his keynote.

And yet, Myerson explained that “Windows 10 is off to the fastest start in Windows history,” without providing any statistics to compare it with Windows 7, which is arguably the most successful Windows version so far.

While it’s hard to believe that Microsoft has outdated figures, there’s indeed a chance that the company uses old figures to praise Windows 10, so let’s have a look at what third-party researchers say.

NetMarketShare says Windows 10 was running on 22.53 percent of the world’s PCs back in September 2016 when Microsoft unveiled the 400 million devices figure, while updated statistics for January 2017 put it at 25.30 percent. This means it improved only 2.77 percent since then, which does nothing more than to confirm that Windows 10 is indeed improving at a much slower pace these days.

It remains to be seen when Microsoft plans to unveil new Windows 10 adoption figures, but with the Creators Update launch due to take place in about 2 months, more information should be provided during the event.
