Less adoption of Windows 11
Microsoft has been encouraging Windows 11 for the users to be a free update. Recently, an Asset Management company, Lansweeper posted a report on April 12, 2022, about the adoption rate of the Windows 11 operating system. They surveyed 10 million PCs out of which 20 were enterprise and 80 were consumer PCs. Now, this report revealed some interesting figures regarding the adoption of Windows 11. 1.44 percent of the users made the jump to Windows 11. Windows 10 is a popular operating system. Also, it holds a greater proportion percentage when it comes to several desktop PCs where Windows 10 is installed throughout the world. Now, all these survey-taking companies used different methods to get the results though they give us a good indication.
Analysis of the adoption rate
As per the pie-chart given by the lawn sweeper, 4.7 percent of the users have Windows 7 installed on their PCs while 1.71 percent have Windows XP on the PCs and 1.44 percent of them have Windows 11. Windows 7 and XP are amongst the least used operating systems today. If we go as per the results of the survey, Windows 11 has the least proportion of installation. Though it’s the latest Windows OS. While Windows 11 has been installed in 80.34 percent of PCs and that’s the largest proportion.
Why less the Adoption rate for Windows 11?
Lansweeper also mentions that the updates for Windows 11 are going fast bit by bit. But the adoption rate might not be as per Microsoft’s expectations in terms of its business perspectives. Most organizations are glad about the working of the Windows 10 operating system that will continue till 2025. They are happy with the existing OS and the support it provides. This is an obvious statement. For most businesses, the installation of the new operating system has made the working speed slower. Most of the machines do not support the up-gradation to Windows 11.
Disappointment for Microsoft
These reports are disappointing for the operating system that has been in the market for more than 6 months. The less adoption rate for this OS might be because of the extra requirement of higher hardware. So, instead of all this companies and users prefer to use the existing OS. More than half percentage of the systems are incompatible with Windows 11. This is one of the constraints. Besides, it has some new security protocols as well. Apart from these, the requirement of TPM 2.0 is essential for security protocols in the world.
Lansweeper also mentions that most workplaces fail to fulfill TPM requirements to upgrade to Windows 11. Since Windows 10 will remain in the picture till 2025, we have enough time to upgrade our hardware and software. The survey states that Windows XP is more used than Windows 11 but this might not be the actual case. This might not be true until and unless we know what methods they use for implementing g their surveys. They give us an overview of the case rather than proving something. All these figures would be a dismal failure for Microsoft.
