The billion, the billion! Microsoft will soon gargle to have installed Windows 10 on a billion devices around the world. The Redmond company announced that its operating system had been installed on 900 million devices. More than this figure, it is the progression of the OS that impresses since since March 100 million OS have been installed.
#Windows10 is on more than 900M devices! Thanks to our customers, we added more new Windows 10 devices in the last 12 months than ever before. From PCs to HoloLens to Xbox to Surface Hub, Windows continues to power innovation—with more to come next week!
It was Yusuf Mehdi, vice president of Microsoft, who announced the thing on Twitter. These 900 million devices count computers, but not only. Windows 10 is also installed on other machines such as tablets, Xbox One, but also products less known to the general public as the Hololens or the Surface Hub.
Microsoft has gained 100 million installations since March, it is expected to reach one billion devices in the first quarter of 2020. The firm Redmond has already won its bet since Windows 10, released in 2015 , is installed on 60% of Windows machines on the market . Microsoft now offers a single OS that knows big updates every six months. A formula that works, even if Windows 7 is still resilient with 30% market share.
