Microsoft’s new tally for Windows 10

Today, Microsoft updated its Windows 10 claim, saying that the new operating system is on more than 200 million devices that have been used at least once in the past month.

Windows 10 adoption is accelerating, with more than 40% of new Windows 10 devices becoming active and it  continues to be on the fastest growth trajectory of any version of Windows.

A company spokesman confirmed that the number included not only personal computers and tablets, but also Xbox which got Windows 10 video game in November  and smartphones now running a preview of Windows 10 Mobile.

It’s impossible to corroborate Microsoft’s claims using data from outside the company due to the “monthly active” framing of the 200-million measurement which implies that Microsoft was tallying unique connections to the Windows Update service, which polls Redmond’s servers only when a device is on but third-party statistics hint that fewer devices are running Windows 10, and that the OS has fallen slightly behind Windows 7’s uptake tempo in its first five months.
