There has been a massive positive respond on a global scale, to Microsoft’s new and last operating system (after that we’ll see “Windows as a service), the Windows 10, as 75 million users have upgraded their computers so far on desktops and laptops.
The fact that the American colossal company decided to release the new Windows version for free – at least for the first year – to those who want to upgrade, has worked as a lure for most users, according to “The New York Times”.
Microsoft has recorded approximately 140 million Windows 8 users and many of them seem willing to upgrade their systems to the latest version. In fact, users from 192 countries have downloaded so far the Windows 10, as Microsoft’s vice president Yusuf Mehdi informed the public. On top of that, 90,000 separate computer and tablet models have been upgraded to the new operating system, while the smart virtual assistant Cortana, has said more than half a million jokes responding to the users’ question “Tell me a joke”.
Furthermore, the Windows 10 Store, has moved 6 times more apps than the Windows 8 Store. In other words, the devices that now run with Windows 10 may not be more than those that run with Windows 8, but they definitely have much more apps to run with.
Microsoft’s strategy starts to become clearer. The company wants to establish fast an extended international network of users and programmers around the new software platform, the same way that Google did with Android. The first few results are pretty encouraging for the company.
But for Microsoft, the biggest challenge of all, according to the analysts, is to enter the new Windows 10 to its famous Windows Mobile Phones.
