Pretty much all of Windows 10's gains come from people upgrading from Windows 8.x, which now has a marketshare of 12.26 percent, down from 13.08 percent the month before. Windows 7 still reigns surpreme with a marketshare of 52.34 percent, virtually unchanged from last month's 52.47 percent.

And despite being cut off from support for almost two years now, 11.24 percent are still using Windows XP, a slight decrease from the 11.42 percent in January.
