Windows 10 is installed on more than 1.3 billion active devices, Microsoft says

During the summarization of the third quarter of the fiscal year, which ended for Microsoft on March 31, CEO Satya Nadella (Satya Nadella) announced that Windows 10 is currently in use on more than 1.3 billion devices. This suggests that Microsoft was able to accelerate the pace of distribution of its own software platform.

Statistics show that the landmark milestone of 1 billion Windows 10 devices was passed in March 2020. This means that it took Microsoft a little over a year to attract 300 million new users to use its software platform.

If you recall earlier statistics, you will notice that Windows 10 has spread somewhat slower in the past. As of March 2019, the operating system was installed on 800 million devices, which means that between March 2019 and March 2020, the distribution rate increased by 200 million users. Thus, the distribution rate has grown from 200 to 300 million users per year, at least relative to the previous two years. It should be noted that the 300 million new users include devices that were connected in April (previously, statistics were provided up to and including March). However, even if we make an allowance for an extra month, we get 260-270 million new users, which still indicates an acceleration in the rate of distribution of the OS.   

This trend is likely closely related to the coronavirus pandemic. Under the quarantine conditions, many people had to work and study from home, which has led to an increase in demand for laptops and computers running the Microsoft software platform. This means that Windows 10 has not necessarily come to be seen by users as the best choice, as external factors also drive its growth in adoption.
