If you are on Microsoft Windows 7-driven computers, then you should now know that the new Windows 10 operating system (OS) is on 900 million devices worldwide – excluding yours. This is also a potential indicator for you to upgrade to the newer operating system. The end of support for Windows 7 is nearing its 14 January 2020 end of life deadline. Would you upgrade to Windows 10.
At this point in time, Microsoft in an official blog post has made public the above 900 million Windows 10 usability statistics. The Redmond-based company also states that it donated more than $1.4 billion in software and services for scalability of non-profit organizations across the world. This encompassed technology and skills aspects. As far as Windows 10 specifically is concerned, Redmond also mentions that it was able to add an increased number of Windows 10 devices over the last 12 months. This piece of news got netizens – especially Twitterati excited. Check out, certain twitterati reactions to Microsoft’s Windows 10 announcement, below:
#Windows10 is on more than 900M devices! Thanks to our customers, we added more new Windows 10 devices in the last 12 months than ever before. From PCs to HoloLens to Xbox to Surface Hub, Windows continues to power innovation—with more to come next week! https://t.co/G3CRdkFoPT pic.twitter.com/38fKk50IEH— Yusuf Mehdi (@yusuf_i_mehdi) September 24, 2019
Awesome news, but still miss the phone devices... Wish the company hasn't given up so easily.— Aaron Hall (@GoodThings2Life) September 24, 2019
Nobody wanted windows 10, we just installed it so you would stop bugging us about it— Elliot Speller 🇨🇺 (@ElliotSpeller2) September 25, 2019
Finally, with Windows 10 rapidly finding pace amongst computers across the world, it now seems to be time for an upgrade from Windows 7. Hence, we are left to wonder if this is now the death knell of the older OS. Remember that even when Windows 7 was at its peak (with respect to number of installs globally), there were still a sizeable number of machines running the then older Windows XP, and Windows Vista versions. Times have certainly changed now.
