Windows 10 is set to become the most widely installed version of Windows to date. According to tech research company Gartner 50 percent of organizations will have started Windows 10 deployments by January 2017.
"In the consumer market, a free upgrade coupled with broad legacy device support and automatic over-the-air upgrades ensures that there will be tens of millions of users familiar with the operating system (OS) before the end of 2015," said Steve Kleynhans, research vice president at Gartner. "For businesses, we expect that implementation will be significantly more rapid than that seen with Windows 7 six years ago."
The group also predicts that by 2019, organizations will deliver twice as many applications remotely, compared with 2015, and that by 2018, one third of notebooks will feature touch screens.
