    Windows 10 is said to be running on 67 million PCs already


    We already knew Windows 10 was going to be popular. So much so that Microsoft reportedly purchased as much as 40 Tbps of bandwidth from content delivery networks (CDNs). The company was already hitting 10Tbps on July 28, when the update was only available to Insiders. Now, it seems that Windows 10 has gained even more users, with an estimated 67 million users as of 8AM this morning.

    A previous blog post by Microsoft put the number of updates at 14 million in 24 hours and it seems that the rate at which users are upgrading their systems has only picked up, with a report claiming that the upgrade counter hit 67 million at 8 this morning. That's almost five times the number of upgrades compared to the first day of the launch.
    Not only that but the company is said to have hit 15 Tbps, double the amount of bandwidth used when Apple last set a new record with its OS upgrade. Since Microsoft is performing a staggered rollout, it stands to reason that as they increase the size of each wave of updates, the company may start consuming even more bandwidth. This is almost certainly the largest software push in history and Microsoft is sure to be proud.

    Hi there

    8 VM's !!!!! upgraded so far -- Good thing about VM's is that they have IDENTICAL hardware !!. Upgraded one and cloned to the rest. All activated properly.

    In the old days I used to have to use TechNet for this type of stuff but now until Ms sorts out the download mania grab as many freebies as you can !!!

    I actually LIKE W10 -- makes my old W7 system look Old and painfully slow.

    Actually I'm surprised Ms didn't use Bittorrent for delivery instead of spending humungous amounts of money on extra bandwidth and servers -- Bittorrent if used legally with secure servers and trackers is a perfectly sensible way of satisfying this type of demand --what will Ms do with all those servers after this initial frenzy is over " psst- want to buy some cheap hardware !!!!".

    Cheers

    In addition to cloning VMware images, you can also create a backup image, via Macrium for example, of the running OS in VMware and restore it to a physical machine. This worked for Windows 8.1 and I don't recall, if the license had to reactivated or not. It probably did it in the background, but after a year or so Windows 8.1 still runs just fine on my PC...

    About to try doing the same for Windows 10, just curious if it'll work....

    There's an option in the Updates page which seems to be some kind of BitTorrent.

    Microsoft should have put Clippy in Windows 10 and it would have been more successful. (Just kidding )

Hello, my first post here, hope it's in the right place. I've been running Windows 10 since the day after the preview was released. However I took a different route than most when evaluating the OS, I installed it on my school laptop. Now it's not...
