WIndows 10 Logs 1 Million Testers
Microsoft’s Windows 10 preview has been open for around a week, and has allowed a massive number of users to get their hands on the brand new version of Windows, an operating system which ‘runs on everything’, according to Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO.
The Windows Insider program lets users get hold of and test new builds of the OS. Many of those interested in Windows 10 have had their chance to test out the OS, and gradually new features are being leaked out across the internet.
New screenshots arrive daily from Windows Insiders, although we’re not sure if they’re permitted to leak them. Regardless, leakers gonna leak, and it’ll happen no matter what Microsoft says in the terms and conditions.
According to the blog post from Microsoft at the source link below, the test version of the new unified operating system has surpassed one million test participants. Extensive coverage of the release by the media may have been partially responsible for the massive turnout.
Apparently about a third of of users are running Windows 10 side by side with other operating systems, as a virtual operating system. the other two thirds of users are running Windows 10 as the primary ‘native’ operating system on their PC, meaning that there are now around 666,000 machines running Windows 10 in the hands of users.
Microsoft’s brand new OS has generated over 200,000 pieces of user generated feedback via the Windows Feedback app, and hopefully these bug reports and snippets of user ideas will help the final version achieve perfection.
