Windows 10

To date, Windows 10 has proven to be enormously popular, even managing to gain over 5 million 'Insiders' before release. And according to Microsoft, this is only the tip of the iceberg with "millions" having reserved a copy of Windows 10.

Though an exact figure has not been given, given the large number of Insiders (beta testers typically make up a small percentage of the whole) and the enormous install base of Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, users of which are all eligible to receive the update for free, the true total could easily be in the tens of millions. This is, of course, mere speculation, but still within the realms of possibility.

With Windows 10 due to arrive on July 29th, and with Microsoft aiming to see Windows 10 installed on a billion devices around the world, it certainly has its work cut out keeping up. As revealed in a recent blog post however, it seems to have planned well for the road ahead.
