Microsoft’s newest operating system, Windows 10, has been installed on over 100 million devices around the world since its launch on July 29 , according to unconfirmed reports. Although the software giant has kept a tight lip on this unofficial figure, many users believe that this install number is perhaps true.
In the first 24 hours after its release, Microsoft’s Windows 10 achieved 14 million installs globally and 53 million installs in just over two weeks. After its first month, the new software hit 75 million installs on over 96,000 unique PC and tablet models. As of today, there is a speculation that Windows 10 has surpassed 100 million installations in its first two months. It means that Microsoft’s new operating system has had over 25 million installs in the last month alone.
|Unconfirmed reports are stating that Microsoft’s new operating system Windows 10 has been installed over more than a 100 million devices.
The rise to 100 million installs is quick but it is reasonable. Firstly, Microsoft offers a free upgrade from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, so users have no reasons to avoid upgrading their system and trying the new OS. It is the free Windows 10 upgrade for users that has done wonders for Microsoft’s install numbers. Besides, the company’s new agreement with Chinese internet giant Baidu helps distribute its products in China and increase its market share in this vast market. In addition, the announcement of new products next month is another reason that has led to a quick rise in installs of Windows 10.
Microsoft’s ambitious goal is to achieve a billion Windows 10 installs within three years’ time. The American multinational technology company has touched 10% of its goal in only two months. So there is still a lot of time left ahead for it to reach the 1 billion mark. Do you think that Microsoft can hit 1 billion Windows 10 device mark?
