windows 11 400 million users

It seems Windows 11 has reached an important milestone: there are over 400 million Windows 11 users in the world, according to an internal report accessed by Windows Central.

The report is not yet public, and Microsoft has not released a statement about it yet, but this means Windows 11 needed 2 years to reach this point. In comparison, Windows 10 reached this number in less than a year, according to the same article.

What does it mean? Well, it means that Windows 11 is still not popular enough among Windows users. You can find the most important Windows 11 stats here, but one thing is clear: it seems gamers love this operating system because it has experienced a growth in popularity for gamers over 2023.

However, according to the same report (it’s not yet made public by Microsoft, so take this news with a pinch of salt), Windows 11 is on its way to getting to 500 million users by January 2024. This would be quite the achievement considering Windows 11’s market share is still very low: 23,64%, according to the latest stats.

Windows 11: 400 million users, Windows 10 still going very strong

Despite Microsoft announcing that Windows 10 will reach the end of support in October 2025, the operating system is still the dominant Windows on the market. The latest statistics place it at a staggering 71,62% market share, which is nearly triple that of Windows 11.

It took a while for Windows 10 to reach 1 billion users, as it did so in 2020, 5 years after its release. But it seems that not even the release of Windows 11 could stop its dominance. windows 11 400 million users

Plus, we’re talking about different OS. Windows 11 sports many AI features, which Microsoft has been at the forefront of, ever since AI came into the picture. But it seems users are not impressed. Many people choose to downgrade back to Windows 10, after updating to Windows 11.

However, as Windows 10’s end is approaching, a lot of people will have to upgrade to Windows 11. But if this is the only way Windows 11 ramps up more users, then it’s not exactly the best way.

But what do you think?
