Now, according to an official Italian Windows Blog, it is believed that Microsoft have finally reached the 1 billion mark for Windows 10 user base which is a very big achievement and one that can be seen as a big one.
Now this figure does not have to do with switching over from macOS or ChromeOS as many would predict but rather it is more likely the cause of users upgrading from Windows 7 and 8 especially after Microsoft cancelled support for the Windows 7 two only about two weeks ago. Many were expecting Microsoft to easily reach its milestone in 2020, but the news came surprisingly early. Windows 10 has held the crown for the fastest-growing OS for quite some time now and the adoption rate is only expected to go further up especially after the cancellation of the Windows 7. The company is offering free upgrades for Windows 7 and 8 users and have compelled people with older systems to buy new systems which have the Windows 10 pre-installed in it.
