Windows 10 Now Running on 800 Million Devices

Windows 10 Now Running on 800 Million Devices

Windows 10 is edging ever closer towards the magic billion mark, with news emerging that the operating system has now been installed on over 800 million devices globally.

Microsoft has regularly touted numbers for Windows 10, most of the time, although not always, by citing the active monthly devices, or those personal computers, tablets and other systems used within the last month. Using that same math, Windows 10 should hit a billion devices in a little over a year. If you compare Windows 7, it took almost 4 extra years for Microsoft to reach the target of 800 million devices.

KitGuru Says: Windows 10 has been continuing to grow each year, although there have been set backs along the way thanks to buggy feature updates.

Microsoft has released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18353 (19H1) to Insiders in the Fast ring. People with all kinds of hardware configurations have been experiencing the issue, and it doesn't matter if you're Intel of AMD: you'll be getting input lag and frame rate drops.

Estimates based on third-party data put Windows 10 on substantially fewer PCs. The Windows 7 end-of-life deadline could be the tipping point, however.

Microsoft did not name the reasons for the decline in performance.

However, in the process of improving Windows 10 in a number of areas, gaming suffered.

The company announced in September 2018 that over 700 million devices were running Windows 10, indicating it had won 100 million new Windows 10 users in six months. WIndows 10 is now on 40 percent pf PCs according to Net Applications but Windows 7 is still in second place with 38.5 percent.

The 163 days to put another million on Windows 7 was more in line with the earliest milestones, such as the 200 million to 300 million (122 days) and the 300 million to 400 million (144 days) moves; those jumps largely concluded during the stretch when Microsoft gave away free upgrades to consumers and some businesses.
