Windows 10 S to be replaced by a new

According to a survey of enterprise IT admins previous year, 68% of businesses are still running Windows 7, compared to 13% on Windows 10.

Windows 10 might finally be the most popular version of Windows out there.

Windows 10 might have surpassed Windows 7 in terms of global market share, but Microsoft is giving holdouts another reason to upgrade. If this trend keeps on going, then we might be looking at Win 10 taking a major desktop market share since Win 7 support has been dropped by Microsoft.

Microsoft says that Office 2019 apps will be supported on any supported Windows 10 SAC [Semi-Annual Channel] release, Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018 and the next LTSC release of Windows Server.

When Office 2019 comes out later this year, Microsoft will support it only on Windows 10, the company said this week.
