Five years after setting the goal for windows 10 to run on one billion devices, Microsoft reveals that it has reached the goal. This achievement comes after its support for Windows 7 ended. PC’s, laptops, HoloLens mixed reality and Xbox One will run on its latest Operating System.


Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of Modern Life and the Search & Devices Group says:


“Today we’re delighted to announce that over one billion people have chosen Windows 10 across 200 countries resulting in more than one billion active Windows 10 devices. We couldn’t be more grateful to our customers, partners, and employees for helping us get here.”


Microsoft’s goal of a billion devices running on Windows 10 comes two years later than it originally aimed for. The tech giant’s plan was to hit that number within three years releasing the Operating System. It, however, made an extension after its Windows phone failed to match the iOS and Android. Microsoft has hit the figure less than 6 months after it got to 900 million devices on Windows 10 mark.

Mehdi also says that Windows 10 is now “the only operating system at the heart of over 80,000 models and configurations of different laptops and 2-in-1s from over 1,000 different manufacturers.”


As of Monday, more than a billion people use Windows 10 across 200 countries. That adds up to about one in seven people worldwide.


“With 100% of the Fortune 500 now using Windows 10 devices, it has become a critical platform for driving business transformation in the enterprise and beyond,” Mehdi added.


He further revealed that Microsoft has more than 17.6 million beta testers. This is good news for Microsoft whose co-founder, Bill Gates announced stepping down from the company’s board last week.
