Windows 10 is now installed on over 50 million computers since its July 29 release. Microsoft earlier announced that the adoption rate for Windows 10 was over 14 million in the first 24 hours of its availability. Microsoft has a target to have Windows 10 running on over 1 billion machines in the next 3 years.
According to Winbeta, Windows 10 is now installed on over 50 million computers which includes free upgrades to eligible computers and new computers shipped with Windows 10 pre-installed. While the adoption number is not huge by any means but considering Microsoft’s staged roll-out of Windows 10, the number is significantly better. Lately Microsoft has been rolling out updates in larger number than before with bug fixes seen in the previous roll-outs.
