Four Weeks After Launch, Windows 10 Running On 75 Million PCs

Exactly four weeks after the release of Windows 10, Microsoft has released an update on the operating system’s upgrade adoption rate.

14 million machines were upgraded to Windows 10 within 24 hours of the operating system release last month, the figure has now risen to more than 75 million in just four weeks.

Microsoft on the 26th of July 2015 rolled out Windows 10 in waves, as free upgrade for Windows 8 and Windows 7 users. Though, difficult to compare, Microsoft sold 40 million licenses of Windows 8 a month after its release, and six months to get 100 million licenses, it’s clear the aspect of Windows 10 upgrade is obviously driving higher adoption rates.


This information was disclosed by Microsoft’s Windows marketing chief Yusuf Mehdi, who also revealed some more exciting statistics of the operating system. More than 90,000 unique PCs or tablet models have been upgraded to Windows 10 in 192 countries. That’s nearly every country on the planet. Xbox One owners have streamed nearly 122 years of gameplay to Windows 10 PCs. More importantly, he said that the Windows Store for Windows 10 has seen six times more downloads per device than Windows 8.
