Windows 10 Installed On Over 14 Million Devicesby Brett Howse on July 30, 2015 11:00 PM EST
Windows 10 has been out for a day, and Microsoft is reporting it has been installed on over 14 million devices so far. That’s not a bad start, but as Microsoft outlined a few weeks ago, the rollout is going to be in waves which should help with network demand from ISPs as well as a belt and suspenders approach against any crippling bugs which might pop up as the amount of different hardware it gets installed on increases.
At Microsoft’s Build developer conference, they laid out their goal of having Windows 10 installed on one billion devices in the next three years, which is their key to their future. Windows is not the primary development platform for many apps anymore, and one way to help that is to have a platform large enough to not easily be ignored. 14 million devices in one day is a good start.
There are a lot more reservations to go though, and those that have “reserved” their free upgrade will be notified when it is ready for their device.
