Currently, Windows 10 has surpassed 200 million installations across various devices. This comes as no surprise since Windows has been offering free upgrades to Windows 10 for users that are still on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. Barely two months ago, it was reported that Windows 10 had already reached the 100 million installations mark. That says a lot about the operating system.
Windows 10 was officially launched on 29th of July this year. This means that the operating system is merely five months old and it’s already living up to Microsoft’s expectation of reaching 1 billion installations in the next three years. As of now, Windows 7 still remains as the most installed operating system globally due to its stability and performance. However, certain reports suggest that many Windows 7 users chose to upgrade to Windows 10 lately which may have contributed to the surge of installations in the past couple of months.
It seems that Windows 10 is getting a warm reception from just about everyone, despite being the new kid on the block. Microsoft provided a better incentive for Windows 7 and later users by offering them a free upgrade to Windows 10 until July 2016; plenty of time to upgrade for those that are interested. Despite this, Windows 10 still has a lot of room for improvements. For starters, Windows 10 isn’t widely used in the tablet and mobile ecosystems yet. Hopefully, come 2016, we would see more devices aside from PCs running Windows 10.
