Net Applications: Windows 10 OS now powers 132 million PCs
According to the statistics released by US metrics firm Net Applications on Sunday, an estimated number of 132 million personal computers (PCs) are now powered by Microsoft’s latest Windows version – Windows 10 OS.
The figures published by Net Applications show the ‘user share’ of Windows 10 OS which was launched by Microsoft on July 29, 2015. ‘User share’ is the stand-in for portion of all systems worldwide which run the Windows operating system.
The Net Applications figures indicate that a 1.3 percentage point growth was witnessed in Windows 10 ‘user share’ in the month of October. As a result of the growth, the user share of Windows 10 OS touched 7.9 percent during the month.
With Windows 10 OS having been launched in July, the month of October was the third full month of the availability of the download and installation of free Windows 10 upgrade for Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 devices, and the pre-loading of Windows 10 on new devices.
Going by the latest Net Applications statistics, Windows 10 OS accounted for 8.8 percent of all Windows devices in October. The number is higher than the Windows 10 raw user share number because only 90.4 percent -- not 100 percent -- of all systems tallied by Net Applications during the month were powered by Windows 10 OS.
