AdDuplex has released its latest monthly report concerning the Windows ecosystem, giving us another look at how far the Fall Creators Update has spread since launch. According to the firm's latest numbers, the Fall Creators Update is now installed on 53.6 percent of Windows 10 PCs. That's up sharply from the 20.4 percent share that the Fall Creators Update commanded in November.
The biggest share that suffered in the latest numbers is that of the Creators Update, which first started rolling out this past spring. It's down to a 33.7 percent share, which is significantly lower than its 63.5 percent share in November. The Anniversary Update is down much less dramatically, moving from 13.6 percent to 10.5 percent. Windows 10 version 1511 is down from 1.5 percent to 1.3 percent, and 1507 has remained virtually static, moving from 0.6 percent to 0.5 percent.
In terms of worldwide spread, Europe is seeing the most installs with more than 60 percent of PCs running the Fall Creators Update "in many countries," AdDuplex says. The U.S. and Canada are showing a similar percentage of installs. Overall, the Fall Creators Update's rollout is showing a much sharper rise over time than the Creators Update, but it's still slightly behind the pace of the Anniversary Update.
As always, keep in mind that AdDuplex's numbers are based on a sample of 5,000 Windows Store apps that use its SDK. Real figures likely differ, but AdDuplex's monthly report is a useful tool for tracking trends. The numbers for the December report were gathered on December 20.
