Windows 10 is now on 900M devices, 1 billion milestone in 2020

We should expect over 1 billion Windows 10 users by early 2020 at this rate

Windows 10 is now on over 900 million devices, with a tweet directly from Corporate Vice President, Modern Life, Search & Devices Group at Microsoft, Yusuf Mehdi.

Microsoft's latest operating system is on a bunch of devices that go beyond just the PC, with Windows 10 inside of HoloLens, Xbox, Surface Hub, the entire Surface family of devices, and more.

We should expect to see Windows 10 reach over 1 billion users at this rate in the coming months, with early 2020 seeming the most likely. Microsoft had 800 million users on Windows 10 in March which was 6 months ago now, so we should expect February-March 2020 for the huge 1B milestone.

Microsoft expected to be at 1 billion users within "two to three years" of Windows 10's release, which would've had them at 1B last year. They're going to be two years off, but in the end it doesn't matter -- 1 billion users of anything is still a big deal, no matter how long it took to get there.

Just give me Windows 11 already, damn it.
