Back in July 2015, Microsoft announced Windows 10, its next iteration of Windows operating system. Stepping up towards a goal of covering up 1 Billion devices, it looks the date is not that far. Windows 10 has just crossed 200M mark of active installs and the adoption is accelerating with each passing day.
As of today, there are more than 200 million monthly active devices around the world running Windows 10.
Here are some of the highlights about how Windows 10 has grown since it's launch:
- And Windows 10 adoption is accelerating, with more than 40% of new Windows 10 devices becoming active since Black Friday.
- In fact, Windows 10 continues to be on the fastest growth trajectory of any version of Windows – ever – outpacing Windows 7 by nearly 140% and Windows 8 by nearly 400%.
- We’re seeing increased preference for Windows 10 with consumers. Since Black Friday, US retail PC share* for Windows 10 grew 16 points to 62% compared to the prior four weeks. Windows 10 mix of PCs rose to 87% from 58% prior to the holiday.
- We are also seeing accelerating and unprecedented demand for Windows 10 among enterprise and education customers. As of today, more than 76% of our enterprise customers are in active pilots of Windows 10, and we now have over 22 million devices running Windows 10 across enterprise and education customers.
Another interesting statistic, measuring progress, is to note how people are using Windows 10, the time they spent daily either at office, home or travelling.
