Ah, you're referring to a graph rather than the link to the graphs etc. Sorry, I hadn't realised there was ever a graph in Post #1, it was the link I was referring to as working ok. I'm like you, I can see the graph in ThrashZone's post, but not in yours.

I just took a snip and uploaded it as a attachment :/
It's better not to use your profile library to show images it just complicates attachments

That's what I do (and did).

It showed up when I was creating/testing the post, but when I logged in again (several hours later) it had vanished.
The same thing happened when I tried again.

The only way I've figured out how to reuse attachments is to:
  • Display them
  • Copy the URL
  • Insert it into the post using the "Insert Image" tool
All my previously uploaded attachments show up in my profile's Attachments list.

I've "spoken" to Brink about it.
I'll fire up one of my VMs and try uploading it again using FF or Chrome (later).

Statistics can be fiddled which way you want to show them. Considering Windows 10 is free it is a dismal failure. It could have been such a different story. If they would have kept Media Center and the Aero Desktop Graphics subsystem as an option. If they had left the control panel alone and not try to load all this mobile crap onto the desktop OS. The crazy part is they made Windows 10 for mobile devices and then have killed of Windows Phone. What exactly do we need Windows 10 for?
I just see a company with no direction with one failure after another. In all honesty the only users who would be better of on 10 are the 8 and possibly 8.1 users. Every one else should hang tight on 7 until Microsoft has a change of direction. I love Linux Mint Mate. Been messing with it. Once 7 is EOL that is where I'll be unless there is a change of directions at M$.

I'm sure it's no coincidence MS went pear-shaped just around the time Bill Gates left...

And yet it's really very simple. All I want, and I know I speak for one or two others, is to be given the opportunity to say two things to MS:-

1. As a choice between operating systems, both of which are yours, I wish to stick with W7 rather than switch to W10. Either way I remain your customer.

2. Don't ask me again. If I change my mind, I'll apply accordingly.

That is really very simple, isn't it?

"I can prove anything by statistics, except the truth" - George Canning

Stats are the double edge sword of arguments as they can help make your case, but they can also hurt your case in the very same context. Adjust particular parameters and factors and you can make even the worst situation seem not so bad.

One thing I wonder about their install on devices "200 million" , is how man computers that had the BT $Windows hidden folders secretly inserted onto their computers fell under this category? Granted that they technically weren't running windows 10 at the time however, 10 was theoretically installed on their computer, just not activated. Maybe, maybe not, but I'd bet my life that the numbers don't reflect the amount of roll backs (I'd like to see those numbers)

3rd time's a charm

There are noticeable differences between StatCounter and NetMarketShare.

I've re-uploaded the graph (Post #1 and this Post) using FF.
Let's see if it sticks.


Data from NetMarketShare

MS tried something similar with W8.
A short time after release they claimed that they had sold 100M copies.

None of the market share sites showed anything like that number.
