Microsoft has achieved a major goal of reaching more than one billion users with Windows 10. In addition to powering over 80,000 models and configurations of different laptops and 2-in-1s from over 1,000 different manufacturers, Windows 10 also powers Mixed Reality and HoloLens, an entire Xbox family of consoles and other devices across 200 countries.

"One in every seven people on the planet are planning, creating, ideating, executing, moving, shaking and doing great things with Windows 10," Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft's Corporate Vice President, Modern Life, Search & Devices wrote in a blog post.

From the launch of Windows 10, our focus was on moving people from having to choosing, to loving Windows. We are humbled that customers are choosing and loving Windows 10, and there has never been a more important time for a secure, reliable platform that can empower people to create, educate and communicate wherever they are, Mehdi added.

"With 100% of the Fortune 500 now using Windows 10 devices, it has become a critical platform for driving business transformation in the enterprise and beyond. As companies transition from Windows 7 to Windows 10, they are making a commitment to running their business more efficiently, more securely, and positioning themselves to offer better products, services, and solutions to their customers."

Microsoft says the milestone is just the beginning and that it will continue to innovate and invest across many other Windows editions, serving diverse customer needs including Windows IoT, Windows 10X and more.

" We will strive to make Windows the most accessible operating system on the planet regardless of where our users are, or what device they are on," Mehdi further added.
