Windows 10 running on one billion devices globally

Windows 10

Windows 10 is currently running on one billion devices across 200 countries globally. According to Yusuf Mehdi, CVP Modern Life, Search and Devices, Microsoft, nearly 100 percent of the Fortune 500 companies are currently using Windows 10 devices. The company added that Windows 10 running on one billion devices is a critical and compelling platform to drive business transformation in enterprise companies.

In his blog post, Mehdi added that one in seven people are involved in the planning, creation, ideation, and execution with Windows 10. This includes developers, students, IT and business professionals. As of this writing, Windows 10 installations runs in over 80,000 models of laptops and convertibles from more than 1000 manufacturers. Windows 10 also powers Windows Mixed Reality, Microsoft HoloLens including the entire Xbox family of consoles and latest Xbox Series X.

The adoption rate of Windows 10 has increased considerably because the Redmond-based company has ended Windows 7 support on January 14, 2020. If you are working with a PC or laptop loaded with Windows 7, you will not receive new updates, bug fixes, and security updates. Moreover, you will not be able to avail technical support from the Microsoft customer service.

Mehdi added that the focus of the company is to put the customer at the central location, listen to feedback and shape that feedback into developmental process. The Windows Insider program with over 17.8 million people is a classic example of how developers and the product team work side-by-side to create a rich and compelling product. The company also made efforts to make Windows an open and inclusive program that is accessible to everyone. The platform helps you to achieve your desired goals easily.
