Over 14m devices installed with Windows 10 on Day 1 of launch

While most Windows users have been patiently biting their nails in anticipation of Windows 10 entering their devices, Microsoft has revealed that it installed the latest operating system in onver 14 million devices across the world on 29 July itself.

The usual procedure involves Windows 7 and Windows 8 users reserving their Windows 10 upgrade and wait till their turn comes. However, despite the initial surge in installations, Microsoft says it will take several weeks to ensure that the roll out has been completed across the globe, a fact not too many users are happy with.

"Rest assured we are working 24×7 to continue the upgrade process. We are grateful for your excitement and enthusiasm and we appreciate your patience over the days and weeks ahead as we carefully roll out Windows 10 in phases to all of you that have reserved," said Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft's corporate vice president for Windows and Devices Group.

In case you have not reserved your upgrade yet, you have time till February next year to do so, after which you'll need to pay up.

In case you're wondering, Windows 10 will come in several editions based on your personal and business requirements. It features a new browser named Edge and Cortana will make her first appearance in desktops. Windows 10 is a result of the most exhaustive 'Insider' programme through which Microsoft developed the best operating system ever and is set to maintain the near 80 per cent share of Microsoft's operating systems in the coming years.
