At Microsoft's annual shareholder meeting, CEO Satya Nadella has today announced that Windows 10 is now in use on over 600 million active devices around the globe, up from 500 million announced at its Build developer conference earlier this year.
When Windows 10 initially launched back in 2015, Microsoft was aiming to have one billion active devices in use within three years. It appears that goal was a little unrealistic, however, as Microsoft has since come forward and claimed that it will not reach that goal in time.
This is likely due to the millions of people who are still on Windows 7, many of which continue to refuse to update. Microsoft is committed to supporting Windows 7 for a few more years, so we likely won't see those users upgrade to Windows 10 for a while. Still, 600 million active Windows 10 devices is no small feat in just two years since it originally launched.
