Windows 10 finally hits the 1 Billion global users mark
Windows 10 was launched in 2015 as the Windows 8.1 successor with a mix of Windows 7 presets and a touch of the Windows 8 design flow. With 5 years down the road, Windows 10 has finally hit the 1 billion users mark worldwide.
Initially, Windows 8 didn’t hit a sounding user mark because Windows 7 was still considered the best cutting edge operating system by most users worldwide.
But when Microsoft revoked support for Windows 7 last month, the only option left for users was Windows 10 which has now hit its target of 1 billion users. In 2017, only 500 million users were using the operating system meaning the rise is from a 3 years trend.
With over 1 billion users, what to expect from future Windows 10 releases
With 1 billion users worldwide and Windows 7 out of sight, Windows 10 will now ship improvements to its user interface. Additionally, fresh security patches will now be common in a bid to make the operating system secure as possible.
However, with a rise in Chromebook sales inking Linux as a close rival, Windows 10 will be matched with new tweaks to make it a low size crisp clean operating system to compete on the new trend of low-size yet clean UI systems.
Well, it’s a win-win generation for Microsoft since Windows 10 is the current operating system that all users must install for full usage support. On the other hand, Windows 8 could also be on its expiry route now that Windows 10 is slowly becoming a major default OS for Microsoft
