I don't believe 10 was ever forced
People are naturally curious and this is the click click next generation



Click click generation , i refer to it as the "as long as it's free" generation.

No doubt the figures do not include those that installed 10, did not like it & decided to go back to 7.

Yeah, the truth can be funny.

Careful with that word "truth" my lady, I had a post censored recently because of it.

Not to mention, if they are going with "total devices" figures as opposed to computers in general, as devices also include; phones, tablets and xbox, all of which do not run XP (that I'm aware of at least)

10 is not too bad OS wise, but for a free OS, which is run on multiple platforms compared to XP, I feel the adoption numbers are a bit of a bitter sweet victory.

So you deny that Win 10's rapid adoption is due more to its being free and actively pushed onto people's computers than for its own "merits"? You are sadly mythtaken.
