Windows 7 concerns, spear-phishing attacks, a blockchain skills drought and more: Research round-up

We looked at how many PCs are still running Windows 7. If our estimates are accurate – 1.2 billion Windows PCs worldwide, with 1 billion running Windows 10 – then Microsoft will have successfully migrated more than 80% of its active customers to Windows 10 by the middle of 2020. Roughly 200 million PCs worldwide will still be running older Windows versions, mostly Windows 7. That estimate lines up nicely with the most recent real-time traffic reports available from the United States Government’s Digital Analytics Program. Based on U.S. Government website traffic, nearly 1 in 5 visitors who use PCs are running Windows 7.
