Windows 10 October Update was Least Used




Windows 10

Windows 10 October 2018 Update was pulled down initially since it had a long list of bugs, but now it has emerged to be the least successful Windows 10 update. The adoption of the October 2018 Update which was rolled out as the version 1809 in October last year has been significantly lower than the April 2018 Update (version 1803) which has continued to lead the Windows 10 family all over the world. , Microsoft rolled out their October update automatically to all their users in phases which would increase the adoption of this update. It appeared that the new versions weren’t able to reach the adoption rate as of the April update.

In January, AdDuplex in a report said– “Out of more than 100,000 PCs which had been surveyed, it was seen that only 12.4 percent ran on the Windows 10 October 2018 Update,  This is not same as the April 2018 Update which has retained its leadership with 80.2 percent. Having said that, the adoption of the October update has almost been double than the 5.7 percent share reported last month.

Microsoft brought the Windows 10 October 2018 Update originally in October last year, but it quickly they pulled down the new version from being distributed since it has a severe bug which majorly affected users’ personal data. Several users reported that face deletion of entire Documents had happened and the Picture folders had become unavailable on their systems. The first bug hadn’t even been fixed and users spotted another bug which affected the way ZIP files had been handled and this resulted in some data loss since it couldn’t accurately extract the contents of ZIP files. All this caused Microsoft to release their October 2018 Update in small batches.

The recent changes might as well help Microsoft in increasing their install base of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update to a certain extent. The company is reportedly bringing the next Windows 10 update in the near future and this update might hit compatible systems during the first half of this year.

AdDuplex report said- “With only a few months to go until users see the new Windows 10 update which is supposed to go mainstream as well, it is not clear whether some PCs will have to install two major updates during a short period of time or they would go straight from A18U to 19H1.
