Windows 10 has achieved 1 Billion Monthly Active Users Worldwide.

Well, almost 5 year's after it's Launch in July 2015, Windows 10 now has managed to achieve a remarkable 1 Billion Monthly Active Users Goal.

Over 1 billion people have chosen Windows 10 across 200 countries.

As per Microsoft, One in every seven people on the planet are planning, creating, executing, moving, shaking and doing great things with Windows 10.

NetMarketShare estimates that Windows 10 commands more than 50% of the Desktop Operating System followed by Windows 7 at 31.30% despite no longer being officially supported by Microsoft.


Microsoft had set out it's ambitious goal to reach out Windows 10 to 1 billion devices just a 2 to 3 year's after a release, however just a year after the Operating Systems release, Microsoft quickly backed off from it's goals.

Back in 2015, Windows Chief Operating Executive, Terry Myerson, said, "Our goal is that within two to three years of Windows 10's release there will be one billion devices running Windows 10."





A year later, Microsoft said "Due to the focusing of our phone hardware business, it will take longer than [end of fiscal year 2018] for us to reach our goal of 1 billion monthly active devices,"


Eventually Windows Phone was shelved,Microsoft admitted the move was a catastrophe and it wrote off $ 7.6 Billion.

Well, things have pretty much changed since then and finally in 2020, 2 years later than originally planned, Microsoft has managed to achieve it's One Billion Users target.
