Nearly 700 Million Windows 10 users

Windows 10 has been adopted by nearly 700 million users, the outgoing Windows chief Terry Myerson inadvertently revealed. Myerson said that the commercial usage of the latest Windows version has also improved 84% year over year.

“Today, we are now approaching 700 million active Windows 10 users, commercial usage is growing 84% year over year, Xbox One is running a Windows 10 core, Surface is leading PC innovation, HoloLens is bringing breakthroughs to computer vision, our universal Microsoft store enables Xbox GamePass, Azure reserved instances, and Office distribution, and the OEM ecosystem is revitalized with profitable growth,” Myerson noted. “Last year, we finished the year with over $8B in operating income from our segment.”

Satya Nadella had revealed last fall that the operating system was running on 600 million devices. In a farewell note published on LinkedIn, Myerson said that Windows 10 adoption rate is reaching new heights. New stats shared by third party trackers revealed recently that the latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update continues to be adopted more rapidly than any other previous Windows version.
