Microsoft Windows 10 slår vild rekord

Sidste gang Microsoft annoncerede en lignende statistik, lød tallet på 900 millioner Windows 10 brugere i september 2019, og siden da har PC-markedet set et markant ændring på grund af slutdatoen for Windows 7, og Microsoft har efterfølgende rapporteret et stærkt salg af Windows 10 til både OEM'er og virksomheder. I de sidste 6 måneder har Windows 10 haft 100 millioner nye månedlige aktive enheder, hvilket løftede det samlede beløb til 1 milliard.

Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President, Modern Life, Search & Devices hos Microsoft, kommenterede følgende vedrørende Windows 10's store milepæl.

“From pioneering seamless touch and pen experiences, to enabling biometric log-in with Windows Hello, and with experiences like the Your Phone app, enabling Android users to connect their phone to their PC—we strive to meet people where they are.

And this innovation continues, bringing Windows to the cloud to make Windows 10 through Azure and virtual machines available on nearly every platform, from Mac to iOS or even Chromebooks. We will strive to make Windows the most accessible operating system on the planet regardless of where our users are, or what device they are on.

Reaching a billion people with Windows 10 is just the beginning. We will invest in Windows not only within Windows 10 for PCs but also across many other Windows editions, serving diverse customer needs including Windows IoT, Windows 10 Teams edition for Surface Hub, Windows Server, Windows Mixed Reality on HoloLens, Windows 10 in S mode, Windows 10X and more”
