The rollout Microsoft's latest Windows 10 release, the October 2018 Update, hasn't been the smoothest to date. While October 2 marked its initial debut, the update was pulled four days later, amid reports of user files being deleted upon upgrade. With a November rollout now likely, AdDuplex's latest report confirms the update has failed to make a dent, with just a 2.3 percent share of the Windows 10 market.
According to AdDuplex's data, usage of other Windows 10 editions has remained mostly unchanged, with minor fluctuations as users move forward. When compared to other Windows 10 versions, the April 2018 Update continues to dwarf their share. The closest is, as you'd expect, the Fall Creators Update falling to 4.6 percent coverage. The Creators Update and Anniversary Update follow with 1.9 percent and 1.8 percent, respectively. Windows 10 versions 1511 and 1507 round things out at 0.5 percent and 0.3 percent, respectively.
As usual, it's best to use AdDuplex's numbers as a sort of general barometer for the rollout pace. The firm's numbers likely differ from real-world numbers, and this became apparent when Microsoft released its most recent official numbers, which differed quite a bit from AdDuplex's reporting at the time. This is likely due to AdDuplex's method of sampling data, which depends on a collection of around 5,000 Microsoft Store apps that take advantage of its SDK.
Microsoft has given us no reason to believe the Surface Duo will be good
Microsoft has made some amazing Surface products, but there's nothing in its history, or what we know so far, that leads me to be confident that the Surface Duo will be a good product. It's incredibly ambitious, but it's being set up to fail.
