As you may know, the Linux continues to rise in the preferences of the public, since as the numbers show its market share increases almost every month.
This means that more and more users are deciding to give the platform a chance.
Let's look at the data that speaks for itself. While Windows seems to be receding slightly, the Linux continues to grow.
Let's look at January 2020
The Linux is at 1.47% while Windows has reached 88.14%.
The transition to Linux Not necessarily a surprise when looking at the recent changes that have taken place for Windows users.
Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 7 in January 2020, asking users to upgrade to Windows 10.
Let's see what happened until March:
Windows has reached 89.21% while Linux fell to 1.36%.
If we try to give a possible explanation for the eruption Windows 10 We could say that many people tried the new Microsoft operating system after Windows 7 support end. For many reasons, however, things did not seem to go so well.
We will mention the most important: Windows 7 worked fine on some users' devices, and the transition to Windows 10 with the old hardware probably had problems. Maybe these users did not want to spend extra money on new hardware to "enjoy" the full feature package of Windows 10.
From April, however, things start to change.
Windows fell to 86.92% while Linux jumped to 2.87%.
Let's look at May
Windows fell slightly to 86.69% while Linux jumped to 3.17%.
Windows remained at 86.69% while Linux went to 3.61%.
Why this leak? This is something that will help Microsoft if it thinks about it.
Some of those who changed to Linux They may have had enough of Windows and switching to an open source platform guarantees more transparency, improved security and more.
The modern approach which Microsoft turned to with Windows 10 certainly did not help, especially with all the controversy over telemetry data collection, and updates that fix updates.
Let me mention that I do not think the change from Windows to Linux will someday catch double-digit percentages and if it happens at some point it will probably be late. But if Microsoft continues in the same style Linux will not need advertising.
