Windows XP Still More Popular than Windows 10 and Windows 11 in One Country

Armenia seemingly has a hard time giving up on Windows XP
Oct 29, 2021 06:19 GMT  ·  By Bogdan Popa  ·    Windows XP is already an ancient operating system, but this doesn’t necessarily mean everybody out there is just ready to let it go.

Not at all, and Armenia is just the living proof in this regard.

According to statistics provided by StatCounter and noticed by German site WinFuture, Armenia is still very addicted to Windows XP, as the 2001 operating system continues to be the leading platform in the country.

In other words, Windows XP is much more popular than newer releases like Windows 7 and Windows 10, and of course, Windows 11 doesn’t even matter in Armenia.

Windows 10 currently the runner-up
More specifically, 53.5 percent of the computers in the country are currently on Windows XP. What this means is that more than 1 in 2 Armenian PCs are powered by an ancient operating system, and this is concerning for so many reasons, including the overall security.

Windows XP no longer receives any updates since April 2014, so in theory, all the found vulnerabilities have been left unpatched. Given Windows versions share some code, there’s a chance flaws discovered in the likes of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 also exist in Windows XP, and this should be reason enough for those who are still running this old operating system to upgrade.

Of course, moving to a newer Windows version from Windows XP isn’t such an easy thing to do. If these devices still run Windows XP, there’s a chance they use ancient hardware too, so buying a new PC is pretty much the only way to go. So at the end of the day, the transition isn’t so convenient, and it’s likely the main reason some people don’t upgrade.

In case you’re wondering, Windows 10 is the second most-used OS in the country with 32.8 percent.
