According to the Digital Analytics Program (DAP), Windows 10 usage in the U.S. is approximately 24% higher than worldwide.
DAP also reported that the share of Windows 10 across all Windows editions was 10.9% in October.
Net Applications' data released earlier this month showed that Windows 10 powered about 8.8% of all Windows PCs worldwide during October.
In September, Windows 10's share of all versions of the OS was 9.2%; it grew to 10.9% in October, and was at 12.8% through Nov. 29. The bulk of Windows 10's growth as measured by DAP came from Windows 7. In the period between Sept. 1 through Nov. 29, Windows 7's share on DAP dropped 4.1 percentage points.
"The stronger showing of Windows 10 in the U.S. wasn't surprising: Not only have other analytics firms shown similar leads, but home turf has long been a stronghold of Microsoft in general — and Windows, specifically," noted CIO.com. "Even so, the trend line for Windows 10 here is much more impressive than for the world as a whole."
