Windows 10 has been garnering a good amount of customers off late with many companies opting to update their PCs to Microsoft’s latest desktop operating system.

One of the big German car maker company Porsche has now decided to upgrade all its Windows 7 PCs to Microsoft’s latest operating system Windows 10.

The company confirmed that all its 27,000 PCs with Windows 7 installed will soon be upgraded to the latest Windows 10 version by the end of next year.

Microsoft has already confirmed that its Windows 7 will become obsolete after January 2020 since it would be the last time that Microsoft will be updating its Windows 7.

After the specified period, Microsoft will not be pushing any new security updates for its Windows 7 and has been requesting users to start upgrading to the latest Windows 10 update.

If reports are to be believed the German car maker Porsche is planning to upgrade to Windows 10 due to the extra security feature which the Operating System provides to its users.

With this decision, it is expected that not less than 27,000 employees of the company will be benefited by using Microsoft’s Windows 10 by end of next year on their PCs.

Microsoft has all this while being requesting customers to upgrade to its new operating system due to its security features and Windows 10 wasn’t even vulnerable to the popular WannaCry cyber attack.

It is, however,¬†worth noting that Microsoft’s Windows 7 is still the most preferred OS among old¬†users as it holds more than 40 percent of the market share with Windows 10 being able to get only 30 percent of users to run the latest OS, according to NetMarketShare.

With Porsche deciding to upgrade all its Windows 7 PCs to Windows 10, this could be coming as good news to the Redmond Giant, and it will also contribute to the desktop market share in the enterprise segment.
