Windows 10 installed on 75 million devices after just a month of availability

Windows 10 installed on 75 million devices after just a month of availability | Windows 8 - CompuSpace | Scoop.it

The free upgrade from Windows 7 and 8 to Windows 10 is doing wonders: In just under a month of general availability, Windows 10 is now running on 75 million devices.

Unsurprisingly, Windows 10 appears to be doing better than Windows 8: back in 2012, only 40 million Windows 8 licences were sold in the first month of availability. After six months, Windows 8 had risen to 100 million licences sold—but "sold" is likely to be a very different figure from how many devices were actually running Windows 8. So, 75 million devices running Windows 10 after a month is pretty darn good.

This is how Microsoft will unite your Windows 10 devices

This is how Microsoft will unite your Windows 10 devices | Windows 8 - CompuSpace | Scoop.it

Microsoft's big promise with Windows 10 is its ability to run apps across the entire platform. The framework for these universal apps hasn't been described in much detail, but a post on the Windows Blog gives a bit more insight under the hood. Redmond's calling these "mobile experiences," meaning apps you can use across a variety of different devices; the software is mobile, not the gizmo you're using it on. Cortana moving from smartphone to desktop and the Xbox One's Game DVR tool being available on your gaming PC are but a few examples. The idea is to offer a set of standards across the Windows 10 platform so everything remains familiar regardless of what piece of hardware you're accessing the application from. That means everything should have, in Microsoft's words, an adaptive user experience with natural inputs; calls for cloud-based services including Cortana integration and the action center and one design language across the board.

Microsoft is giving away 100GB of OneDrive space to Dropbox users

Microsoft loves giving away free OneDrive space. After gifting 100GB of free storage last week for signing up to Bing Rewards, the software maker has a similar offer aimed at Dropbox users today. If you’re an existing Dropbox user then all you have to do is sign in to your account to obtain 100GB of free OneDrive storage for a year. It’s not the two years from the Bing Rewards program (which you can still claim today), but it’s enough if you’re even considering switching to Microsoft’s cloud storage. While it's not clear if this offer is time limited, it's probably worth claiming the 100GB storage now just in case this is a temporary promotion.

Microsoft will break Internet traffic records this week as it begins to distribute Windows 10.

Microsoft plans to hand Windows 10's final code to participants of its Windows Insider program on Wednesday. Insider is a beta project that kicked off last October -- and will continue after the official launch -- that gives the adventurous early builds. For others, all Microsoft has said is that it will roll out Windows 10 in "waves." It has not defined how large those groups will be, when each will receive the upgrade, or how long it will take to get the upgrade in everyone's hands.

PSA: A big Store bug in Windows 10 Mobile build 10080 has now been fixed

PSA: A big Store bug in Windows 10 Mobile build 10080 has now been fixed | Windows 8 - CompuSpace | Scoop.it

Some of the big features that came alongside Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 10080 are not actually part of the OS; they’re the new apps that can be downloaded through the Beta Store. Luckily, one of the big problems that was plaguing the Store has now been fixed.

The latest phone build of Windows 10 Mobile, which was released last week, is not the most stable of operating systems. Despite its numerous new features, it’s also filled with bugs and issues that can make using the OS very difficult to use. One of these was the Beta Store bug that stopped users from downloading all the new apps that came alongside the new build.
