Windows 10 surpasses Windows 7 to become most popular desktop OS

Interestingly, Windows' market share as a whole declined slightly between November and December, falling from 87.03 percent to 86.2 percent.

It's important to mention that, although this issue will lead to the deactivation of the built-in Windows 10 Administrator, this account should not be used on a daily basis given that all Microsoft operating systems have it disabled by default since Windows 7.
