A reported 38 percent of organizations have already adopted Windows 10 just one year after launch.
Spiceworks recently released results of a survey exploring organizations' adoption of the operating system, perceptions of its new features and the benefits and challenges faced in the first year.
In addition to that astounding 38 percent figure, the highest adoption rates were found in North America (39 percent), in companies with more than 250 employees (51 percent), and in the software, manufacturing and construction industries.
The results also revealed 85 percent of companies that have implemented Windows 10 are generally satisfied with the OS and 51 percent are very or extremely satisfied. However, when IT professionals were asked which OS their end-users are most satisfied with, Windows 7 leads at 69 percent compared to Windows 10 at 17 percent.
"We're rolling out Windows 10 on our new devices and upgrading a majority of our existing devices, and the biggest benefit so far has been the overall speed and performance of the OS," said Joe Kinne, IT manager at Prime Electric. "At first, our end users were reluctant to give up a system they already know and like, but they quickly caught on and adapted really well once they began to try the new features and realize the improvements."
