Windows is the most popular operating system in the world at the moment. There is no debate. It owns the world of the OS. This is also why it doesn’t come as a surprise to learn that according to a tweet by Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi, Windows 10 is currently installed on 900 million devices around the world.
According to Mehdi, Microsoft has added more Windows 10 devices over the past 12 months than they have ever before, which makes sense when you think about devices like the Surface Hub, HoloLens, and even the Xbox. These devices played a crucial role in helping with the adoption of the Windows operating system.
To make it even more impressive, Paul Thurrott has estimated that if this growth trend continues, there is a good chance that in the first quarter of 2020, there would be 1 billion devices running on Windows 10 around the world. This growth seems to be especially fast when you take a moment to consider the fact that it was only in March that Microsoft hit the 800 million milestone. This means that they hit another 100 million in half a year. This is a truly an impressive feat. Even for Microsoft. It will be fascinating to see where it is in a year.
