The adoption rate of Windows 11, at 6 months in, is amazing… amazingly horrific for Microsoft. Let’s dial in the simple numbers, and there’s plenty of commentary elswhere. Overall adoption rate right now is 1.44%. Overall install base for Windows… XP… right now, is 1.71. There are still more people on Windows 8 than Windows 11. Windows Vista appears to be the only one that has all but disappeared. There are more people running any of the Mac Operating systems from the last 7 years, than are running Windows 11.

Windows 11 is continuing to struggle both in the enterprise and at home, according to figures published by IT asset management platform Lansweeper. Disappointingly for Microsoft, it has yet to even surpass Windows XP.
