Microsoft Windows 10 is currently running on 800 million devices. According to company sources, Windows 10 has been added by 100 million subscribers in the last six months. The industry analysts revealed that Windows 10 is the largest operating systems globally after the recent development. However, the Redmond-based software giant managed to reach the milestone after hard work. If you compare Windows 7, it took nearly 4 extra years for Microsoft to reach the target of 800 million devices.
Microsoft released Windows 10 in 2015 with new features and improvements. The initial hype was great with the company promising entirely new UI when compared with Windows 7 and the ill-fated Windows 8. The significant aspect of Windows 10 is that customers are provided with two major updates every year instead of monthly and periodic update rollouts.
In addition to Windows, Microsoft has invested heavily in emerging technologies such as machine learning, artificial intelligence and cloud computing in the form of Microsoft Azure. The Cortana voice assistant is still in its infancy and has not taken a huge leap like other competing products such as Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
Microsoft is also constantly rolling out new apps to the Microsoft Store. Recently, we save the push of File Manager based on Windows 3.1, which helps you to revisit the old age computing. We still remember the days where we worked with Windows 3.1 using a big monitor with a crazy file manager, DOS commands, and Word Processing tools.
Microsoft has been slowly started to migrate Windows 7 users to Windows 10 and even asked users to install March update. The main advantage of the latest update is that it brings in SHA-2 encryption algorithms. The company is planning to end support for Windows 7 by 2020. You will be able to work with Windows 7 beyond the end of the update timeline but you won’t receive any fresh updates and security enhancements.
