Just like last month, other sites showed similar results.
The Register provided some handy tables.

This is potentially bad news for W7 and the W8 Series fans.

MS will be forced to "accidentally" include GWX (or worse) in the monthly update rollups for those operating systems.

GWX well that will be the end of updating if that is the case first popup message and a restored system image

Yep, if GWX returns, there will be a glut of downloads from Macrium.

Hi,
Since a bunch of brilliant "somebodies" has informed ms that everyone loves popup messages I'm sure anything will just produce a nag to upgrade for free or not it won't matter sort of like the full screen reminder update
Either way I sure don't need 2 win-10's I don't use the one I have.

Good point. Fortunately, I've got images dating back to before, and well before, GWX. And of course there's always the reinstall option, if you still have the media to do so.

Market Share - W7 Up, All Others Down
