Windows 10, Microsoft: Windows 10 runs on more than 75 Million Devices

Microsoft has revealed that its new Windows 10 software is running on more than 75 million computers, tablets and other devices since the operating system was launched less than a month ago.

The free upgrades probably account for the bulk of the 75 million devices now using Windows 10, said analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy, although he said more new models will likely be sold this fall.

Some of the machines getting Windows 10 are quite old. Microsoft executive Yusuf Mehdi, who released the new figures Monday, said in a Twitter post that:
"More than 75 million devices now run the software, with the number 'growing every day"
 "even some devices manufactured in 2007 have upgraded to Windows 10."
Along with new features, the Redmond, Washington, software giant designed Windows 10 to fix some unpopular elements of Windows 8, the operating system's last version. It's intended to work on PCs, tablets, smartphones and other devices, although the company released it for PCs and tablets first.

The company is hoping the new system can help it gain traction in the mobile sector, where it lags behind Google Android and Apple iOS, and in emerging technologies for computing.
