Tell that to Microsoft.

Then post it on the Microsoft forums. Or their Twitter account I guess.

MS's claim wasn;t news here that I saw, so there's no reason to refute it. We already know why both sides are correct.

That adds something to the discussion.

Quote:
As we prepare for the adoption of new devices within our enterprise customer base, we’re excited that we’re seeing the fastest ever adoption of Windows 10, with more than 76% of our enterprise customers in active pilots and over 22 million devices running Windows 10 across enterprise and education customers. Windows 10 was designed as an in-place upgrade for our enterprise customers, and we are excited about an incredible line-up of Windows 10 devices from our partners.

Quote:
Enterprise customers are moving to Windows 10 faster than any version of Windows.

https://blogs.windows.com/business/2016/08/11/updates-to-silicon-support-policy-for-windows/

Many large businesses can be reluctant and still be upgrading faster than XP -> 7. Our Hospital didn't dare move a muscle to get off XP until it was going to be against the law, but we already have a Win10 testing image because the majority of our Win7 programs work on 10 as-is, unlike the XP-32 to 7-64 switch. Poof, your argument is smoke.

Your post doesn't make any sense; why would I post this on Microsoft's forums when the point was to help better frame the issue, raised by a question made by none other than you? Secondly, I said, as you can read in the second quote, that this article adds to the discussion. The sample of the study is statistically relevant to take into consideration and so it is news. Can they both - the study and Microsoft - be right? Sure, but as you saw in the first quote, and as randomizer says, Microsoft conflates pilots with adoption, and also puts Enterprise and Education in the same bag, and the second statement is vague. Can it be the fastest adoption rate by... 0.01%? Yes. Is that relevant? No, but it is to Microsoft's PR. The point is, we don't have numbers from them but we do from an independent third party. So, until more data becomes available, this is the possible status quo in our knowledge. You may find that irrelevant, of course.

I work in the IT department for the largest school district in my state. We have something around 80,000 concurrent users. We moved to Windows 10 over the summer.

Would you base a student's education on Linux to prepare them for workplaces that will, most of the time, have a Windows environment?

In EU at least at technical schools you will get to work on Win, Lin even older Nix. And are required to complete assignments for Win, Lin.
Pure Nix is pretty much dead, replaced by Lin a copy of Nix.

Businesses have no need for Win10 spyware and adware, they are happily camping on Win7 and saving costs.

Personally I'm camping Win8.1 until I need Win10.

That's why you are avoiding it, not them. Big difference. It has nothing to do with their decision, as it would not be enabled in said environment.

You are aware that those aren't issues on the enterprise edition right?

Haven't read any of this thread, but I'm assuming it has been pointed out that this isn't news?

I work for one of the largest banks in the world... We switched from the XP to 7 on LITERALLY the last day that XP was officially supported.

For any medium to large business, it takes a lot of resources to plan out and test such a transition. I expect most large businesses to hold off on transition to 10 for several more years to come.

Banks are a little different as they tend to have a lot of legacy software to worry about.
