The new version of the operating system has been very well received by users. Microsoft announced that Windows 10 has reached 270 milion active users! All users who have upgraded the operating system or have bought a computer or laptop with Windows 10 since the operating system became available in July last year were taken into account.
The ones from Microsoft are saying that the rate of absorption of Windows 10 is with 145% bigger than the one for Windows 7. “Windows 10 is the version with the fastest growth for both consumers and enterprises” said Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella. And the company’s vice president, Terry Myerson, said that Windows 10 was used for more than 75 bilion hours. 14 mlion people switched to Windows 10 from the first day of launch, 75 milion in the first month. In January it overcame 200 milion and now 270 milion active users.
Of course, these remarkable performances were helped by the fact that the operating system was available for free download (in some cases was installed despite users’s desire). The free upgrade to Windows 10 will end in July.
