    Microsoft says Windows 10 is now running on 270 million devices

    In the opening keynote for its Build conference in San Francisco, Microsoft's Terry Myerson announced that the number of active devices has risen sharply since the start of the year. But can that pace continue?

    Hope so.Lots of Enterprises would be moving to 10 this year+I feel they need to extend their free upgrade offer if they want to keep the pace alive.

    I will be very surprised if MS doesn't extend the free upgrade offer.

    WOW! According to Netmarketshare.com W-10 gained a whopping 1.33% for the month of March compared to February. Considering the upgrade to W-10 is FREE and the coercive tactics M$ is using to achieve their goals, the adoption rate is pitiful IMO. Why can't M$ let W-10 rest on it's own merits if it's so much better than 8.1 or 7? And just think of all the bad will M$ has generated with their heavy handed tactics. I don't think M$ will have much choice but to extend the Free upgrade offer just so they can continue their coercive upgrade strategy.

    Hard to believe any numbers from MS concerning w10 adoption rates given their tactics.

    It is doing a lot better than the W8 series.

    The numbers seem more plausible than MS' claims about W8.

    Who cares about the nums. I don't like W10 and the MS tactics. So I will not be in the nums.

    Let's wait and see what happens after July 29 2016. If MS extends the free upgrade then numbers will continue to go up. If they don't then what happens? Will they pull the Get Windows 10 process or modify it? In either case, numbers will go down if people have to pay for it, especially since so many got it for free.

    IMHO, I think the number of people using the free upgrade to Win 10 is rapidly on a decline. At this stage most new users of Win 10 are people buying new devices.
