Microsoft announced back in October that Windows 10 had surpassed 110 million installations worldwide, which for October was an impressive achievement. But that was over 3 months ago, and since 2015 is coming to a close, we thought now was probably a good time to check in on that install count. Last time I checked, 120 million was the number.
According to my contacts, Windows 10 has now been installed on over 200 million devices worldwide.
Windows 10 was released to the public exactly 5 months ago today, meaning the operating system has averaged around 40 million new installs a month. That’s pretty impressive, but when you factor in Microsoft pushing Windows 10 for free straight from the desktops of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users, it’s not all too surprising.
So with 2015 at a close, Microsoft has 200 million installations in the bag. 200 million thanks to people upgrading for free, Windows Insiders testing new builds, and holiday buyers purchasing new PCs and tablets for their loved ones. Still, the company is a fair way away from their goal of 1 billion devices in three years, but I’m pretty hopeful that they will reach their goal.


ROUND 2 ‪#‎ALSIceBucketChallenge‬: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella along with vice president of Windows and devices Terry Myerson just took the 2015 #ALSIceBucketChallenge after being nominated by ALS patient and advocate Steve Gleason! In turn, Mr. Nadella nominated 6 MILLION Windows users worldwide!

The Ice Bucket Challenge is back. A year after the social sensation took the Internet by storm, the ALS Association has introduced the hashtag #EveryAugustUntilACure, encouraging people to once again take the icy plunge, and keep it going every August till there's a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
Actress Renée Zellweger joined the challenge on Tuesday, standing in a trough so that her horse could drink the water afterwards. The association is suggesting a number of ways to complete the challenge in a drought-conscious way, such as using an existing body of water or using an alternative substance.
