Windows 10 is edging ever closer towards the magic billion mark, with news emerging that the operating system has now been installed on over 800 million devices globally.
The other big milestone for Windows 10 is that it has the highest customer satisfaction in the history of Windows, something underlined by Microsoft Corporate VP of Modern Life & Devices Yusuf Mehdi.
Microsoft had initially expected to achieve the goal of having Windows 10 introduced on 1 billion gadgets all inclusive in three years after its discharge, however it missed the goal a year ago.
That 800 million number counts desktop PCs, laptops, smartphones and hybrid devices like the Surface and the Xbox One. Windows 10 Update KB4482887, has been confirmed by Microsoft to severely hamper performance in certain games.
500,000 Protest in Algeria Against Bouteflika
Bouteflika's campaign manager Abdelghani Zaalane meanwhile insisted Thursday that the president's health raised "no worries". It's the third Friday running people have protested, and the demonstrations have continued into the week.
Since the release of the original Windows 10 in 2015, Microsoft has released another six versions to the operating system and nearly all of these have attracted their own fair share of controversies and user complaints. Last year Windows 10 overtook the older Windows 7.
It seems like the tech giant has completely focused on the bug fixes and general improvements and has now stopped working on developing new features.
While this poll is in no way an accurate picture of the real world, considering our tech-aware community that doesn't always hit on the "update/upgrade" button, it does show a prevalent love for Windows 7. Furthermore Microsoft hasn't explained the reason behind this performance degradation. It also comes just two months after the company announced that Windows 10 surpassed Windows 7 in terms of market share. The organization reported in September 2018 that more than 700 million gadgets were running Windows 10, showing it had won 100 million new users in under a half year.
