Windows 10 now on 200 million devices worldwide
MANILA, Philippines – Microsoft proudly announced the accelerating growth of Windows 10 adoption on Monday, January 4.
In a blog post, Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President for Windows and Devices, said over 200 million monthly active devices around the world are now running Windows 10.
The adoption rate of Windows 10 is also reportedly faster than that of Windows 7 and Windows 8, "outpacing Windows 7 by nearly 140% and Windows 8 by nearly 400%."
The adoption rate, while impressive, is partly driven by the time-limited free upgrade from Windows 7 and 8.1 to Windows 10.
The adoption of Windows 10 was also not broken down by device type, which would include tablets running Windows 10. – Rappler.com
