More than 200 million devices are now running Windows 10


Back in October, Microsoft officially announced more than 110 million devices were running Windows 10. Today, a new report states the OS is now running on more than 200 million devices. The software giant launched Windows 10 back in July 29th – so that means, the OS is running on 200 million devices within 5 months of release. Of course, the number is quite impressive – however, since Windows 10 is a free upgrade for most Windows users, the latest number may not be too impressive for some.

Doing some quick math shows that the OS is gaining around 40 million installs every month, which isn’t very impressive, but it’s decent. However, it is worth noting that we are not quite sure if the latest number of Windows 10 installs include devices like the Xbox One and Mobile devices — which, of course, can change the story quite a bit.

Windows 10 will surely get a lot more users in 2016 as Microsoft continues to polish the OS and fix more bugs. The company is also expected to release two new major updates for Windows 10 to the public in 2016. For those who don’t know, next year’s update is codenamed as “Redstone” and it will bring extension support for Microsoft Edge, a floating Cortana, improvements to Continuum, and much more.
