Windows 10 installed on over 75 million devices, covering over 90,000 unique PC and tablet models

Microsoft has now revealed that Windows 10 is currently installed on over 75 million devices since its launch on July 29, and that those installs cover 90,000 unique PCs and tablet models.

The new information was revealed via Twitter by Yusef Mehdi, Microsoft's Corporate Vice President, for the Windows and Devices Group. He stated that Windows 10 was "running in 192 countries, virtually every country on the planet". He added, "Even some devices manufactured in 2007 have upgraded to Windows 10."

Mehdi also offered some other related stats:

  • More than 122 years of gameplay have streamed from Xbox One to Windows 10 devices
  • 10 million achievements unlocked: Microsoft Solitaire Collection, Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta
  • In response to "tell me a joke", Cortana has told over half a million jokes since launch. :)
  • Windows Store for Windows 10 has seen 6X more app downloads per device than Windows 8

It would appear, at least on the surface, that Microsoft's strategy of offering Windows 10 as a free upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 owners for its first year is generating positive results
