Windows 10 On 400m Machines
Microsoft says its Windows 10 rollout has reached 400 million machines. Microsoft senior veep Yusuf Mehdi took to the stage at an Atlanta conference and said: “Over the last 18 months, we’ve made very fast progress with getting Windows 10 broadly adopted. [There are] security improvements we’ve done – there have been three releases in that time period.
“It’s 150 percent more than the Windows 7 adoption rate.”
Shortly before Windows 10 stopped being free in July, the operating system’s market share still hadn’t hit 20 percent, kyboshing Microsoft’s “one billion machines” by the end of 2017 target.
However, more deals are said to be on the way, including a 4 million machines deal with the US Department of Defence.
