Because I believe most of those users who upgraded from 7 to 8 and then to 8.1, are the users who like to embrace the new ... so its natural that most of them would try to upgrade to 10.

On the other hand, users who still use Win7 are those that dont like change for change's sake and need a real reason for doing an OS upgrade; if they didnt change to 8, most likely wont want to change to 10 either.

Im probably on the minory, I actually like 8.1 ... tried Win 10 but didnt like its quirks, like having little control over the Windows Update ... so I turned back to 8.1 (actually to the server version of 8.1, that I use for work reasons).
