A fascinating quote from that article:  "In fact, more machines are using Windows XP."

I have two machines - Dell XPS 8940 Desktop and ASUS Vivobook F512 laptop - that were Windows 11 capable so I've upgraded them. So far I like Windows 11, although I have replaced the Start Menu/Taskbar with StartAllBack.

Except that is clearly outdated and inaccurate. It seems the author relied on just one, outdated source.

It does not take much effort to see that XP has ~3% of the marketshare while Windows 11 is now about 9%.

For sure, Microsoft would like to see W11 do better, but I don't find the numbers for W11 surprising, or disappointing - under the circumstances. Pretty sure Microsoft does not either.

What circumstances? Two HUGE ones!
    1. W11 requires the latest hardware. This mean many W7 users will need to upgrade. And that leads us to #2.
    2. There is a global hardware shortage and shipping delays for that hardware.
For sure, the numbers will go up after the holidays.

Even if their device supports TPM, there are also those who avoid change.  With Windows 10 support continuing until October 14, 2025, there isn't pressure to hurry the upgrade.  Others may want to "wait and see" what issues there may be on the new OS.  Personally, I've found the adjustment from Windows 10 to Windows 11 a smooth process.

For sure - hence the reason there are still 3% using XP.

I hate change. I've become old and more catlike these days. ;)
