Windows 10 migrations will continue into 2018
Windows 10 has been out for over a year now and has gained almost complete dominance over previous versions for consumers, but not for business. Not yet anyway. With many millions of consumer installations already completed, there are few mainstream computers that did't take advantage of the free upgrade from Microsoft.
According to new survey from Context, business migrations to Windows 10 will continue through 2017 and into 2018. There is expected to be a steady increase in acceptance of the new operating system but it will be slow.
"It is hard to say [when migrations will speed up] because it was decided by the size of the business, and no all of them are not started testing Windows 10 straight away," said Context senior analyst Marie-Christine Pygott.
We had the whole migration from Windows XP to Windows 7 happen in 2014, which was not really that long ago. There is no instant need for companies to migrate straight away.
