In an interview with Mary Jo Foley of ZDNet portal representative of the group confessed that they are very satisfied with how Windows handles 10, which has already hit 350 million devices, but admits that it can not be them reach 1 billion in three years. The result is that the poor condition of their telefonowego business and the resulting decision that the mobile version of Windows 10 is no longer in the circle of Microsoft’s top priorities. But what is important, the company does not give up this purpose, but simply puts it in time, because they get a billion installations have them take just more time.
It is worth mentioning that for the first time this ambitious target mentioned Terry Myerson during the conference Build 2015. The number of installations billion assumed desktops, laptops, tablets, Xbox One, mobile devices or the likes HoloLens and the Internet of Things. The system recorded a really good start, but this was due largely to the possibility of a free upgrade for users of Windows 7 and 8.1, which expires on July 29. After that date, you can expect a clear slowdown Windows 10, so it’s no surprise that Microsoft has decided to extend this purpose.
