Windows 10 Sets a New Personal Record with 800 Million Active Devices

Windows 10

Microsoft has announced that Windows 10 has hit a couple of major milestones, where it was spread far and wide today that over 800 million devices have Windows 10 installed. If you compare Windows 7, it took almost 4 extra years for Microsoft to reach the target of 800 million devices. We could see Windows 10 receive a big boost from gamers this year though, as the Halo Master Chief Collection and Gears of War 5 are both set to launch this year.

It seems like the tech giant has completely focused on the bug fixes and general improvements and has now stopped working on developing new features. People with all kinds of hardware configurations have been experiencing the issue, and it doesn't matter if you're Intel of AMD: you'll be getting input lag and frame rate drops.

Microsoft admitted that it likely wouldn't reach 1 billion devices by 2018 back in mid 2016.

Estimates based on third-party data put Windows 10 on substantially fewer PCs.

The organization is at present settling its most recent Windows 10 refresh, code-named "19H1" which is required to achieve the current machines in front of occasion leaving space for Microsoft to feature new highlights in its up and coming Windows 10 discharge planned for in the not so distant future.

The end is near for Windows 7, even as it remains in widespread use across the business world. Using the 12-month average change in user share, Computerworld recently forecast that almost 41% of all Windows PCs will be running Windows 7 at the moment it falls off Microsoft's support list.
