Microsoft has announced that there are more than 75 million devices currently running Windows 10. The number was released by Yusuf Mehdi the corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Windows and Devices Group on Twitter.

Windows 10 was released less than a month ago, and Microsoft has stated that its goal is to be on one billion devices in the next few years. Some have stated that this goal will be set for 2017 or 2018.

The latest update brings a plethora of new features such as Cortana which is only available on the Windows Phone, laptops, desktops and Windows Tablets. Cortana also has a limited release on Android and while limited in some core functionality Cortana still shines as an excellent virtual assistant.

Mehdi has also released some interesting data stating that more than 90,000 unique devices have downloaded the operating system including some that go as far back as 2007. Microsoft’s latest operating system is clearly resonating with consumers and they might be able to reach their goal of 1 billion installations fairly quickly.

Do you think that Microsoft will be able to pull off their goal and what do you think of Windows 10 so far?
