    +1 +1 +1

    And the "implied" notion that Windows Store is the "Attraction" of Windows 10 is ludicrous, at best.
    Worthless article.

    ..........But the way it is reading that is windows 10 store only.

    There is no such thing as "Windows 10 store". Just Windows Store.

    Who cares. people use Windows 10 NOT because of Windows Store.

    The Windows store I think will grow in popularity as mobile increases. The Surface sales are continuing to grow this will help and I am seeing a few more tablet like PC's coming from the vendor's which will help. I will say that if this is 3 Billion people since the launch of the Windows Store then this is not a good number as I am willing to bet Android and iOS do that in a year.

    A good number however we need to be happy about is that paid transactions have raised 4.5x since Windows 10, in the end you can have less users coming to your store but if your store is profitable then developers will come.

    Unfortunate though is that I currently use my Win10 device still as a PC with only using x86 applications, if they can get Windows Mobile back on track I can become apart of that number.

    Windows store is the same for 8/8.1 and 10.

    Unless I missed it in the article, how many of these downloads are by choice

    ie, the top category for downloads is Navigation and Maps, a far bit of this I assume is auto downloads/updates to the built in Maps app, what is the split for this against those that chose other apps in this category

    Store is used to update apps, so unless we see a figure for downloads by choice over downloads of system installed (and updated) apps it is a bit meaningless for me
