Goodbye Windows XP. OS market share dropped to less than 1%

Microsoft ended support for the Windows XP operating system more than six years ago. However, many users still continued to use it on their PCs.

So, as of August 2020, the 19-year-old OS was installed on 1.26% of all laptops and desktops in the world – on millions of computers. Now, the share of Windows XP has finally dropped below 1%.

The official “end of life” of Windows XP came in April 2014. This means that Microsoft hasn’t released any important technical or security updates for the OS in over six years.

Microsoft’s official page has long reported:

On April 8, 2014, support for the Windows XP operating system ended – 12 years after its release. Microsoft no longer provides technical support or security updates for this operating system. Switching to a modern operating system is extremely important. The best way to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 10 is to buy a new device. ”
