AdDuplex: Windows 10 April Update rollout reaches 50%

It was a big surprise for me. AdDuplex has released its latest Windows 10 distribution figures. Windows 10 April Update scores with good values, the rollout runs much faster than expected.


The data from the new AdDuplex report of May 2018 paint a clear picture. The following graphic shows the distribution of Windows 10 by builds.

So the Windows 10 April update is already running on 50% of the Windows 10 machines – a value I would not have expected after the error reports of the last weeks. On the other hand I had mentioned within my blog post Windows 10 April Update (Version 1803): Upgrade FAQ: The only new feature of Windows 10 version 1803 is that Microsoft uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to identify the compatible or incompatible computers.  Apparently this was very successful, because the share of Windows 10 V1709 has decreased to 43%. The remaining Windows 10 builds are in the low single-digit percentage range and no longer play a role. Paul Thurrott asked, Why in hell does Microsoft rolls out the April Update, although many users are reporting serious issues? There is no answers.
