Microsoft finally puts Windows 10 over the 1 billion mark

Microsoft today claimed that Windows 10 powered a billion devices, a milestone the company originally said it would meet between one and a half and two and a half years ago.

"Over one billion people have chosen Windows 10 across 200 countries resulting in more than one billion active Windows 10 devices," asserted Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president, in a March 16 post to a company blog. The bulk of those devices were undoubtedly desktop and notebook PCs, although Microsoft also tallied Xbox game consoles, which run a version of Windows 10, as well as extremely niche devices, like the Surface Hub.

“One in every seven people on the planet are planning, creating, ideating, executing, moving, shaking and doing great things with Windows 10,” Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Modern Life, Search & Devices, division, said in a blog post.

Mehdi highlighted several devices within Microsoft’s portfolio: the Surface Pro, Surface Book, and Surface Hub 2S, as well as the upcoming Surface Neo. What he didn’t mention, of course, were the past devices that used Windows 10 and then fell by the wayside, specifically Windows 10 Mobile phones that couldn’t lure consumers away  iOS and Android.

Windows 10 has only open seas in front of it. With Windows 7 now retired from support and Windows 8/8.1 already under a 5% share, it won't be long before 10 is the last Windows standing.It was no coincidence, of course, that Windows 10 reached the billion benchmark after the veteran Windows 7 had been pushed aside. One could conclude, then, that Microsoft might only have made its time-sensitive goal if it had moved up Windows 7's retirement two years.
