The journey of Windows 10 seems to be tumultuous. It started with a difficult start (although it is certainly not as difficult as Windows 8), and although the operating system improved dramatically over time thanks to regular software updates, it had several features that caused users to become dissatisfied - the famous error deleting user files is a good example.
However, now that previous versions of the operating system have been removed, it is the only real choice for consumers and companies looking to stay familiar with Windows. With that in mind, the development of Windows 10 in recent years may have been inevitable - its pandemic Covid-19 probably helped increase the users of the operating system.
Indeed, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella confirmed this in a statement. "While we have been in a pandemic for over a year, the digital adoption curves are not slowing down," Nadella said. "They are accelerating and this is just the beginning. We are building the cloud for the next decade, expanding our market and innovating at every level of technology to help our customers be resilient and transform. ”
Microsoft had previously set a monthly target for active devices of one billion, but exceeded that number in March 2021. This means that the operating system has amassed an additional 300 million device installations in just over a year.
This news comes from the latest Microsoft earnings report, where the company announced about Q3 2021 (fiscal year) revenue of $ 41,7 billion - up 19% year on year. THE Microsoft products attributes it to the growing interest in various cloud computing products.
It remains to be seen whether Microsoft will be able to sustain this growth. If it can, Windows 10 may soon reach the two billion monthly active devices.
