Window 10 has 800 million installs

Microsoft’s goal is to reach 1 billion installs and this is not impossible at all. There are still many that use old operating systems. Even me, I installed W10 on an W7 system few days ago. Currently, there are 800 million devices that are running Windows 10, and the growth is a big one if we are reporting on the figures from the last half year.

6 months ago, we were counting 700 million installs, and if we make a pretty simple computation, shortly, let’s say in one year, Microsoft will reach the 1 billion installs goal.

OnePlus 6T runs Windows 10

One of the members of NTauthority community – Bas Timmer – succeeded, after many attempts, to install Windows 10 on an OnePlus 6T phone.  Moreover, this is completely functional!!!

Windows 10 will allow cloud reinstallation

At the moment, if you want to reinstall Windows 10, then you need a copy of the installation ISO either locally, either on an USB stick. Well, this might change soon.

This is because in the current version of Windows 10 Insider Preview Microsoft is testing a new option called “Download Windows from Cloud” that does nothing else than to download you locally a version of the installing package. Unfortunately, at least for now, the option works only for “clean install”, meaning you will not be able to keep even your documents. The option seems a good one and it remains to be seen if it will come on the stable production version. Until then, you can check the Microsoft blog for other updates brought by the new Windows 10 versions.
