Less than one percent of PCs filtered are right now running Windows 11

It's presently been north of a month since Microsoft delivered the most recent form of Windows yet another study recommends short of what one percent of PC clients have moved up to Windows 11.

The circumstance represents a huge network protection hazard as Microsoft no longer gives bug-fixes or security patches for Windows Vista, 2000, XP, and 7. Albeit most of the clients are on more current working frameworks, the billions of dynamic Windows gadgets overall means there could in any case be a great many individuals utilizing gadgets that are uncertain and open to assault.
