Microsoft provides statistics on Windows 10 adoption, and a few other details
Windows 10 has proven to be rather popular since its launch on July 29, and we assume it has to do with more than just its free price tag. Microsoft has brought some major changes that have actually made Windows “cool again,” something desperately needed after the flop of Windows 8. If you’re wondering how many products run Windows 10 today, we just received details.
Yusef Mehdi, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President for the Windows and Devices Group has just tweeted details. We hear that 75 million devices now run Windows 10, and this even includes computers from back in 2007. 90,000 unique PC and tablet models make up those 75 million units, so we do see broad adoption across a ton of device types. Mehdi goes as far as to include other details like:
– More than 122 years of gameplay have streamed from Xbox One to Windows 10 devices
– 10 million achievements unlocked: Microsoft Solitaire Collection, Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta
– In response to “tell me a joke”, Cortana has told over half a million jokes since launch. 🙂
– Windows Store for Windows 10 has seen 6X more app downloads per device than Windows 8
This momentum should continue throughout the year as we find newer computers that run the platform.
