Windows 10 has been installed on 700 million devices
This increase is excellent news for Microsoft, though it must be remembered that Microsoft originally thought that Windows 10 would be installed on one billion systems by 2018, hoping that a larger number of Windows 7/8.1 users would have upgraded to the OS initially and that new PC sales would remain strong. Today, it seems possible that Microsoft will reach this 1 billion installs mark by 2020, assuming that current trends continue.
Microsoft has also confirmed that they have 135 million monthly subscribers to office 365, increasing their subscriber count by 15 million since October 2017, adding a lot of additional revenue to the company.
Today, Windows 10 is used by over 50% of PC gamers on Steam, giving Windows 10 the largest OS market share amongst both gamers and general PC users, making it one of Microsoft's most successful OS' to date. Windows 10's long lifespan also helps this metric, with Windows Vista, 7 and 8/8.1 were all released and replaced within a three-year timespan or less.
