Microsoft opens champagne: Windows 10 runs on 600 million devices Source:

Chief Executive officer Redmond Corporation Satya Nadella second time in 2017, announced the official statistics on use of the flagship operating system from Microsoft. So, today is used by more than 600 000 000 different devices. This can include computers, laptops, game consoles collection, Xbox One, Surface Hub site collection and even augmented reality headset HoloLens. About Nadella said today at the annual meeting of shareholders of the company.

Originally, Microsoft planned to reach the level of 1 billion devices running Windows 10 by the beginning of 2018. But the spread of OS was not proceeding as quickly as we would like the management of the company, so original plans had to be abandoned last year. It became clear that to reach one billion devices will have to wait a little longer. The growing proliferation of Windows 10 greatly slowed after Microsoft abandoned the model of free updates with the previous versions of the operating system to the new one.

In early 2017 W10 was installed on 500 million devices. Not so long ago, Microsoft decided to abandon support for mobile operating system Windows Phone so in the near future we may witness the announcement of the brand new smartphones running . As of yet, Microsoft keeps up with their revised projections as at the beginning of the year stated that by November, plans to reach 600 million units. Will they be able to reach 1 billion devices – will show time.
