It's been something of a process for Microsoft to get here.
According to complaints in the Microsoft forums, after installing the October 2018 Update users were finding that it could break FLAC support in Windows 10. Below that you're looking at Windows XP as the next most prevalent version, though that only has 4.54% of the market share.
The turning point was flagged by web traffic analytics firm Net Applications, whose NetMarketShare figures showed Windows 10's market share on desktop and laptop PCs overtaking Windows 7 for the first time in December 2018. (We aren't displaying every tracked OS, so the totals do not add to 100 percent). Windows 7 64-bit is said to have dropped 3.53 percent, with other OS's adjusting upwards and downwards slightly. There are still millions of individuals as well as businesses that have yet to move on from the ten-year-old operating system, but Windows 10's rise to the top of the market share list at least suggests that the market is moving in the right direction as Microsoft winds down Windows 7 support.
It would be interesting to know more about what drove those adoptions.

Still, Microsoft continues to tweak the update to ensure it's working and is planning more updates for 2019.
A small cumulative update has broken one of Windows 10 preview build 18305's biggest features.
Microsoft says that it is aware of the problem, but the company does not plan on releasing a fix for it until the end of the month.
Except there will. If you're willing to pony up the cash, Redmond will keep those updates coming for another three years via paid-for Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU) through January 2023. Nevertheless, Windows 10 has overtaken overall there too, with 16.04 (-0.27) against Windows 7 with 15.09 (-0.99).
