Microsoft’s corporate vice president of Windows and Devices Group, Yusuf Mehdi, said that over 900 million devices are running Windows 10. Most are PCs, which also include HoloLens smart glasses, Surface Pro tablets, and Xbox One game consoles.
Tehnot.com previously reported that in September 2018, there were 700 million devices running Windows 10, and 600 million a year earlier. Thus, over the past 12 months, the increase in the number of gadgets on Windows 10 has doubled compared to the previous similar period.
According to the statistics portal NetMarketShare, the percentage ratio between the number of Windows, Mac OS and Linux users has not changed over the past 24 months, and the number of Windows 10 users has increased due to a decrease in the share of Windows 7 in the operating system market.
The increase in the rate of migration of users of Microsoft products to the latest version of Windows is not least caused by the statement of the Redmond company about the termination of support for Windows 7 from January 14, 2020.
