The bigger story is the fact that Microsoft Windows 10 will have only achieved around 50% uptake, at the point when Windows 7 reaches the end of life, including it's extended support, on 14th January 2020.
Added to which there are still a high number of Windows 7 machines, some say at least 20%, that still fail to install monthly security updates.
The truth is most versions of Linux are now far more reliable and stable than Windows, whilst now providing comparable functionality and utility.
The reason for this is the fundamental design philosophy of the Windows system of software updates, including applications. They are still applied ad-hoc and completely in an uncoordinated way, if updates are applied at all.
By comparison, all main Linux systems have a coordinated update mechanism, that includes not just the operating system, but all the applications. Which always ensuring full compatibility and interoperability, of the operating system and its applications.
As the years have gone by, this distinction, which was a fundamental design choice, has become evermore pronounced.
Consequently, as the systems become more sophisticated and complex, reliability is becoming evermore difficult to sustain on Windows compared to Linux systems.
