Slow progression, but steady progression. The Windows 10 May 2020 Update may have had more than its fair share of hiccups, but the latest version of the OS is on the up.

The latest AdDuplex survey for August reveals that version 2004 has now carved for itself a 24.1% slice of the pie. This intelligence was gathered from 150,000 computers running the operating system, and makes for a solid 12.5% increase from last month.

By the same token, the November 2019 Update has replaced the May 2019 Update as the second most popular flavor of Windows 10.

It now has a 35.5% share, compared to the 33.5% of its immediate predecessor.

Older version of Windows 10 including the October 2018 Update all have single digit numbers next to them, and most of these will continue to dwindle in the coming months as the user base slowly transitions to the newer releases.

Speaking of releases, Microsoft last month announced that more Windows 10 PCs would start receiving the May 2020 Update automatically — in particular those that are still running a version of the OS that will soon be unsupported.

Redmond is using artificial intelligence technology to determine which devices can be automatically updated to the latest Windows 10 release, to good success it must be said.

Add in the fact that the company has also allowed more recent Surface devices like the Surface Laptop 3 and the Surface Pro X to install the May 2020 Update, and there is every chance that the numbers will continue to shoot up.

Good show.
