More than two years later than Microsoft had expected, Microsoft announced on its official website that Windows 10 had 1 billion users worldwide. It is worth noting that the site is presented in Italian and is automatically translated according to the region.
The last time Microsoft announced Windows 10 users was in September last year, when the figure was 900 million. Perhaps because of win7’s retirement, the number of Windows 10 users grew by 100 million in just one quarter, breaking the 1 billion mark.
Of course, there are nearly 2 billion PC users worldwide, and even if Windows 10 is more than 1 billion, there are still a significant number of users stuck in older operating systems such as Windows 7/8.1, as well as PC users on other platforms such as macOS and Linux (including various distributions).
In addition, Win10 is not the so-called “Windows 11” system, the current Windows development team focused on the Windows 10X system, its UI is more modern and simple, can be adapted to Surface Duo and other dual-screen devices as well as the service is about to form a folded-screen notebook.
