Microsoft has announced its desktop system Windows 10 is now running on 400 million devices, taking longer to reach the 1 billion goal. Ever since its launch, the adoption of Windows 10 is 150 per cent faster than Windows 7. Microsoft Windows 10 which was launched in July 2015 as a unified operating system for all devices and was made available as free upgrade for users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, reached 300 million active devices in May 2016.

These active devices include¬†PCs, Tablets, Smartphones, Surface Hubs, HoloLens and Xbox One consoles. However, the adoption has not been as successful as Microsoft hoped it would be. As against Microsoft’s announcement in 2015 to reach 1 billion active devices by 2018, there has been a recent revelation that it might take longer to reach that goal. Recently, Microsoft announced it will discontinue the production of Lumia phones as it is not yielding as they hoped. Here, we are on the right track if we ask if Microsoft going down the hill.

    It won’t be a bad question to ask if Microsoft is going down the hill. Or are they confused? *No Offense*

    Win10 didnt live up to expectation, Win7 is faster (forget above 150percent faster report above) and Win8 has better design.

    Am not saying Win10 is a total failure, some prefer and like it more. But they’re few.

    If most people didnt get it for free, I wonder how many would purchase it.
