Three months on: Windows 10 surpasses 120 million installs

Microsoft announced earlier this month that Windows 10 had surpassed 110 million installations worldwide, which is an impressive number indeed. Windows 10 has been out for three months now, so I decided to check in and see how the install number is holding up. According to my contacts, Windows 10 has now been installed on over 120 million PCs worldwide.

120 million installs in three months is nothing to sniff about. With the Windows 10 November Refresh update around the corner, it’s possible we’ll see that number spike yet again as people who want to upgrade for Windows 10 are likely waiting to the update to release first before making the jump. We’ve also got millions of Xbox One devices waiting to be added to this number too, as Windows 10 for Xbox One rolls out on November 12.

Microsoft wants 1 billion Windows 10 installs in three years. If the Redmond giant keeps this momentum of 120 million installs per three months, in 24 months they’ll be at 960 million installs, just shy of 1 billion. Hopefully by then, Windows 10 Mobile would’ve taken off too, and HoloLens will be out on the market further adding to that install count.
