As in, more and more people are using the operating system. Windows 10 is already the number one desktop operating system in the world, but if you were wondering how big a success it is, then read on.
For Panos Panay of Microsoft is here with some official details.
The Chief Product Officer, Windows and Devices, says that the company has seen increased usage of Windows 10 with a large number of devices being upgraded to the OS — particularly after the retirement of Windows 7 back in January.
“As a team we have been spending a lot of time with our customers, OEM partners and teams inside and outside of the company listening and learning. The feedback we are hearing is energizing, and if one thing is clear it is that Windows plays a critical role in helping people navigate the times we are in. Customers are using Windows PCs to stay productive, connect and learn in this time. In fact, over 4 trillion minutes are being spent on Windows 10 a month, a 75% increase year on year.”
So, there you go, a huge jump in Windows 10 usage.
This 75% increase in the use of the operating system year-on-year translates to more than 4 trillion user minutes. And the market share is very likely to continue to grow in the coming months and years, as Redmond focus on bringing the platform to everyone.
Including expanding its reach via new versions of Windows, and new form factor devices.
Good times, we are in!
