The latest figures on Windows 10 adoption show that Microsoft’s operating system has once again failed to make any headway over the last month.

Figures from Netmarketshare showed that the percentage of users on Windows 10 stood at 22.59% for the month of October, which was a tiny increase of 0.06% compared to the previous month where it was 22.53%.

And indeed, in the month before that, August, the OS was on 22.99%, meaning it has actually dropped 0.4% since the summer. It would seem, then, that the end of the free upgrade offer has certainly had an impact on adoption, even if it didn’t in August (which actually saw a 1.86% gain over July, even though the offer was over at that point – there are various reasons why this upwards blip could have happened).

Netmarketshare’s stats showed that Windows 7 is still the clear leader for October, sitting on 48.38% – more than double the market share of Windows 10. The older OS actually gained 0.11% this past month.
