Windows 10

If a new report is correct, Microsoft's free upgrade strategy for Windows 10 is continuing to pay off. An unconfirmed story claims that the OS has now been installed on over 200 million devices since it officially launched on July 29.

The report, from WinBeta, comes from unnamed sources. Officially, Microsoft has stated Windows 10 has been installed on over 110 million PC and tablets since it launched, but that number was revealed in early October and is certainly higher now.

WinBeta notes that this new 200 million milestone is also subject to some interpretation, since it was unable to learn if that number also included Windows 10 Mobile device or the recent Xbox One "New Experience" update, which is also based on Windows 10. Microsoft will continue to offer Windows 10 as a free downloadable upgrade for Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs until late July 2016.
