Based on this research only 0.21% of PC users are currently running Windows 11 . has been available for Windows 10 users for a month already. How is it that such a small proportion of the market has converted to the new Windows operating system?

To carry out its study, the Lansweeper branch relied on data from 10 million computers running Windows. These figures include both professional and personal uses. These results willThis is the fifth most used version of Windows update.
In other words, a very low percentage. To the point of passing after Windows XP, which, now over 20 years old, still accounts for 3.62% of respondents . Even Windows 8, which is however not very popular, exceeds the new version with 0.95%.
What are the reasons for such unpopularity?
The first explanation for this exceptionally low conversion rate is obvious. This is the performance gap required for the update to its predecessor. Many people do not have a device with sufficient specifications . If there is possible to install it manually on an incompatible PC, even without a TPM 2.0 chip, we can understand that a lot can be dissued to do so.
In fact, the same IT asset management software company had already done a business survey. Analyzing approximately 30 million Windows devices from 60,000 organizations, she found that on average, only 44.4% of desktops are eligible to receive automatic upgrade , while the others are not.
A heavy security system
Windows 11 has also been widely criticized . Some say in particular that the system would reduce the performance of some AMD processors . And in general, it seems that the update's security system is too greedy to allow Windows to offer any real performance improvement.
These figures contradict those of Windows. Yesthe sample is large, the specific source does not allow the study to be considered as fully representative. But it already seems clear that Windows will have to make an effort to convince us that Windows 11 can improve the performance of our PCs .
