Given Microsoft’s aggressive push for Windows 10, you’d expect the operating system to grow at a pretty fast pace, but it turns out that it’s another Windows version that’s dominating the desktop.

Windows 7, whose support is coming to an end in January 2020, is increasing its market share much faster than Windows 10, even though Microsoft is clearly pushing people towards the latter.

Data provided by NetMarketShare for the month of May indicates that Windows 7 is getting very close to powering 50 percent of the world’s PCs, growing from 48.50 percent in April to 49.46 percent last month.

This is an increase of 0.96 percent at a time when the full focus is on Windows 10, and it comes during a month when Windows 7 was said to be the number one victim of the WannaCry ransomware, whereas Windows 10 was fully protected.

On the other hand, Windows 10 also increased its market share, but this time, the growth is substantially smaller. The most recent Windows version improved from 26.28 percent in April to 26.78 percent last month, so it posted a bump of just 0.5 percent in the last 30 days.
