Windows 10 Has Been Installed Over 100 Million Times

windows 10 100 installs

Windows 10 is definitely enjoying more popularity when compared to Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Microsoft’s latest operating system has already been installed more than 100 million times in just two months, and these numbers are only going to increase as time goes by. Actually, Microsoft wants to reach one billion Windows 10 installs in the next three years, and I’d say that this goal is definitely achievable. One reason behind the OS’s incredible success is probably the easy and free upgrade path for those who are running Windows 7 and 8.1. There are even reports of pirated versions of Windows who were eligible for an upgrade, and surely they contributed to the 100 million installs that we mentioned before.

Furthermore, gamers were definitely eager to upgrade their OS in order to prepare for future DirectX 12 games. Previous versions of Windows don’t support the new API, which means that those who want to keep up with the latest titles will pretty much have to switch over to Windows 10 sooner or later. With the impending launch of Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 for Xbox One, Microsoft’s new OS will find its way to even more systems in the following years. Have you upgraded to Windows 10 yet?
