According to the latest report by Statcounter, Windows 11 has enjoyed two months of growth at the expense of the outgoing operating system. As of June 2024, it reaches 29.71% of the market share, roughly 2% more than the month before. As a result, Windows 10’s market share has dropped to 66.04%, a 2.3% reduction in a month.

Transition Challenges

It’s worth noting that Windows 10’s support will end in just 15 months, so there is a huge number of PCs that will soon become unsupported as Microsoft pulls security support by October 2025 (unless you pay for ESU packages for a fee). However, transitioning all PCs to Windows 11 will be very difficult given the OS’s security restrictions – PCs without a built-in or discrete TPM 2.0 chip will not qualify for the free upgrade, which restricts systems as recent as 2017 from upgrading their systems.

Feature Notoriety

Besides that, the notoriety that comes with Windows 11 regarding its features, such as dumbed-down features, system-wide ads, and the controversial Recall feature, is another factor that may slow the adoption. Microsoft’s increased aggression on ads has been well-documented at this point, including the recent attempt at “redesigning” its Weather apps to now simply load a webpage, ads included.

Pokdepinion: Perhaps there’s even a group of people waiting it out until Windows 12 launches. Because of the good-bad-good cycle, right?

What is the difference between Windows 11 and 11S?

Windows 11 is a full-fledged operating system offering complete functionality, including support for all apps and software installations. Windows 11S, on the other hand, is a streamlined version designed for security and performance, allowing only apps from the Microsoft Store and requiring Microsoft Edge for safe browsing. This makes Windows 11S more secure but less flexible than Windows 11.

Which is better: Windows 11 Pro or Windows 11 Enterprise?

Windows 11 Pro is designed for small to medium-sized businesses, offering enhanced features such as BitLocker, remote desktop, and domain join services. Windows 11 Enterprise, however, is tailored for large organizations with advanced needs, offering additional features like advanced security, comprehensive device management, and extensive IT controls. The choice depends on the scale and specific needs of the business.
