Microsoft’s Build conference is underway and the keynote address has provided some numbers which show just how Windows 10 is doing ever since it was released last year. Microsoft today announced that there are now more than 270 million computers running Windows 10. The adoption rate has been much better for this iteration than it has been for several previous iterations and Microsoft is taking full advantage of this fact by regularly broadcasting the adoption rate.
Microsoft released Windows 10 in summer last year. Since then it has released several updates for the latest iteration of its operating system and today it’s also going to detail the next major update that’s set to arrive for Windows 10 in the next few months.
Microsoft also mentioned during the keynote today that users have already spent more than 75 billion hours in Windows 10 and that 500 new devices have been built just for the latest iteration of Windows.
The company pointed out at today’s event that Windows 10 has the fastest adoption rate of any version of Windows ever released. Given the sheer number of PCs out there that run Microsoft software, 270 million doesn’t feel like much, but it does show that the OS is on the right track and that eventually it’s going to account for many more Windows-powered PCs.
