StatCounter bases its findings on worldwide Internet usage covering more than 10 bill pageviews every month on more than 2 million websites.

One original feature of this operating system would involve replacing certain legacy programs like Paint and Notepad with so-called "universal" applications from Microsoft's UWP app platform.

Though not directly related to Office 2019, Microsoft also made some changes to Windows 10 servicing.

Nearly three years after Windows 10 was launched, the number of computers running the OS has overtaken Windows 7 for the first time, according to web analytics firm StatCounter.

The operating system was broadly well received, building on improvements in Windows 8.1 and including capabilities such as the Cortana AI assistant.

Provides additional protections for 32-bit (x86) versions of Windows 10, version 1709.

Microsoft is stepping up its efforts to protect Windows users from programs that use fear to convince people to buy or upgrade products. The latest numbers put Windows 10 at 42.78 percent, up from 41.69 percent in December 2017.

Windows 8.1 now enjoys 8.7 percent of the worldwide market, while Windows XP retains a 3.36 percent market share, according to StatCounter. With any luck, Microsoft will phase out Windows 7 faster than it did XP. Since October past year, the analyst company's figures have shown the gap between Windows 10 and Windows 7 narrowing. Beginning March 1, cleaner or optimizer utilities found with unwanted behavior will be automatically deleted. This will last for another five years. Staring on January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer support Office 365 ProPlus on Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Server 2016 and any Windows 10 Windows 10 Long Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) release. Meanwhile, Microsoft cut extended support for the unloved Windows Vista operating system completely past year. The company still records Windows 7 as the top-ranked Windows version with a market share of 44.81%, followed by Windows 10 at a huge distance of 28.19%. Many users see no usability or functionality reason to upgrade.
