Windows 10 gets on 100 million machines within 2 months

Microsoft’s Windows 10 has seen more than 100 million installs within two months after launch.

This represents an increase of more than 25 million devices in the past month, with 75 million users registering their copy within the first 30 days of its release.

This is mostly due to the ease at which one can upgrade to and install the new OS, as well as the fact that it was free for anyone with valid Windows 7 and 8.1 licenses.

Despite this impressive result there is still a large number of systems that could be converted to the new operation system.

As of August, Windows 10 accounts for just five percent of all operating system installs. Windows 7 is still around the 50 percent mark, so Microsoft’s biggest competitor is itself.

With Microsoft making inroads into countries like China, who traditionally don’t encourage American made software products. Once it can legitimize its latest OS among consumers there, it will have a huge market to tap into to get more numbers.

Microsoft’s goal is to have a billion Windows 10 installs within three years.
