Why is Windows 10 getting such a bad press?
Windows 10, the software for running Microsoft’s new Windows 10 operating system, has suffered a massive drop in user support since it launched earlier this year, according to a new survey conducted by the online platform Gallup.
The survey, which was released on Tuesday, shows that Microsoft’s flagship operating system’s popularity among Windows users is actually on the decline, with only 22% of Windows 10 users in the U.S. saying they were willing to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10.
By comparison, 78% of users who were running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 in 2016 said they were interested in upgrading to Windows 8 or Windows 10 and 64% of those who were currently running Windows 8, Windows 8 and Windows 10 said they would prefer to upgrade to Windows 7 again.
A significant majority of Windows users are switching to Android, with 71% of Android users saying they would consider switching to Windows in the future.
Gallup also found that, in a poll taken earlier this month, 78 percent of Windows 8 users said they preferred to upgrade.
However, that number dipped to 62% when asked whether they would continue using Windows 8 if they could, down from 81% in October 2016.
Gallatt asked users if they were likely to upgrade in the near future, and of the respondents who said they planned to upgrade, 61% said they wouldn’t, while 31% said it would be a good idea to upgrade if possible.
Windows 10 is not a good choice for most users, according.
Nearly three quarters of Windows 7 users said that they would not upgrade to a newer version of Windows after upgrading to the latest Windows 10 version, while less than one-third of Windows Vista users said the same.
The number of Windows XP users who said that Windows 10 would be “good for the environment” (34%) was also slightly lower than those who said it was a “bad choice” (36%).
Gallup found that more than two-thirds of Windows PCs are running Windows 10 on their primary machine, with just over half of Windows desktop computers (54%) and only 21% of all mobile devices running Windows on the primary platform.
More than half of those using Windows 10 are using it on their laptops or tablets, while nearly one-quarter of those running Windows XP are using the software on their desktop.
Windows is a very popular operating system for many companies, including the government, and Microsoft has used the operating system to create some of the best-performing and most powerful computers around.
Microsoft also uses Windows for its cloud services, which are designed to enable its customers to take advantage of cloud services such as Microsoft Azure, the company’s online cloud.
