    Windows 10 Now Has 350 Million Active Users


    Microsoft announced two major Windows 10 milestones this morning: There are now over 350 million devices running Windows 10. And the system’s first major and free upgrade, called the Anniversary update, will arrive on August 2.
    I spoke with Microsoft’s Terry Myerson about these developments last week, and I’ll focus on the new usage figure here.
    Myerson told me that while the 350 million figure was important, Microsoft used other metrics to measure its success.
    “The world is loving Windows 10,” he told me. “And customer satisfaction is at an all-time high. That is how we view success.”
    Fair enough. But you may recall that I’ve been closely watching the Windows 10 rollout in order to compare it with Windows 7, generally considered the most successful Windows version ever. That OS achieved a regular cadence of 20 million new licenses per month during a period of time in which Microsoft cooked the books a bit to provide some financial stability.

    How many are running Windows 10 simply because their machine decided to update itself?

    Probably a few percent but doubtful if a large percentage of the overall install base.

    350 milllion is a lot but far from the 1 billion that MS set for its goal.

    I think a great part of that numbers are coming from the "new" sold PC.

    Those numbers are for popularity chasers, as far as I'm concerned one good OS that works on my computers is quite enough.

    Based on that logic, W7 trumps all in the desktop/laptop segment (~1 billion users).

    W10 and W7 gained market share last month.
    XP and the W8 Series declined.
