Windows 10 64-bit now has more users than Windows 7 and 8.1 64-bit combined, with over 42% market share. Over the past few months, Windows 10's market share has been growing at a faster rate, likely due to Microsoft's "free upgrade" period ending next month on July 29th. 

Now Windows 10 64-bit has gained a significant lead over Windows 7, which was formerly the most popular OS on the platform. Linux and OSX take up around the same market share as last month, with neither platform seeing any significant growth this year.

 

  Windows 10 64-bit now has more users than Windows 7 and 8.1 combined  

On the GPU side, Nvidia remains dominant, with 56.71% of the market in this survey, with AMD taking up  25.14% and Intel Integrated Graphics making up 17.77% of the market.  

A new VR category has been added to the Steam Hardware Survey, stating that 0.15% of steam users that was part of the survey owned an HTC Vive, with only 0.06% owning an Oculus Rift. If this data is to be believed then there are over 2x as many HTC Vive owners as there are Oculus Rift owners.

It's no surprise really when they force the update on you, maybe not on all users but it happened to me and plenty of others. While that's probably not the reason why so many are using 10, I for one would be on 8.1 still.

I was sceptical when I heard that they would actually do that but I was watching a movie and a popup with the update appears, I thought it's for the regular update which asks you to restart or postpone but doesn't proceed without any input, so I ignore it and put the movie back on foreground and minutes later it reboots and starts installing. Thanks MicrosoftQuote

Yep same here, used classicshell for a windows 7 layout start menu and its the best thing.

As for it being more used now then windows 7, that was to be expected, but it is surprising it took less then a year.Quote

It is surprising, considering how long people typically hold onto OS'sQuote
