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.

    I actually love 8.1. Granted i used 8.1 in my tablets. Win 7 on my gaming laptop and on my wife's pc. She also loved her tablet with windows 8.1. Win 10 took away triple side by side in tablet mode on my sp3.

    Yes, and it's not necessary to even use it as intended

    Cool. So you don't own any Android or Apple devices then? A smart TV? ALL of them collect data and send it along. Just stop, please, it's silly.

    I installed win 10 on my HP dv6z -one of the original AMD llano based systems (I have an MSI GE60 with Win 8.1). So far, basic system functionality is improved and nearly everything made it through except my blu ray capability with powerdvd 10 (DVDs play fine).
