Windows 10 now runs on 132m devices, but it’s slowing

The initial growth for Windows 10 has been huge, just since July 132 million computers have been upgraded for free to Microsoft’s latest OS. But after just three months the adoption rate has been slowing down since the launch three months ago. This information has come from a report published today by Net Applications which also states that Windows 10 has a user share of 7.9% – which in October alone it […]

Windows 10 will soon be getting significant DPI improvements

As a Mac user I’ve probably been spoilt with consistently clear text and proper scaling but since using Windows 10, I’ve seen numerous issues with scaling and DPI. Good news though, as the computer world is shifting towards full 1080p screens and 4K and sometimes 5K – the software needs to be able to cope with the added real estate and make sure everything scales correctly and doesn’t appear blurry. Today Microsoft have […]

Microsoft teams up with OEMs and Intel for new ad campaign

It’s not news anymore that the PC industry is doing badly. Just earlier in this year in July figures were released that overall PC sales were dropping 10-12% every year, whereas Mac sales were surging ahead with 5-6% extra market share in the second quarter of 2014 and 7.8% in Q2 2015. In fact Lenovo, HP and Dell haven’t done that well. Dell had a negative growth of -8.7% ad HP […]

This comes from a report published by Ars Technica which contains details that Microsoft changed the optional tick box to be ticket so that when someone updated their […]

On Friday, Microsoft and the rest of the Windows Insider Team announced a new build of Windows 10, 10547 almost a month after the previous version. The last build fixed a few bugs but also a new design for the right click option and mostly design changes.

Windows RT now has the start menu from Windows 10

Windows 8.1 RT was an odd beast when it launched with the Surface RT in 2012, it never did much and users couldn’t download anything from the web, only the limited Windows Store, which still doesn’t have all the apps you need. It was launched to compete with the iPad – having an app store and near the end of its shelf life it was undercutting Apple’s offering. But with an […]

Windows 10 is now on 75 million devices

I have personally stated this many times, but it is hard to argue that Windows 10 is a big hit and is actually really great, and the latest install base numbers prove this. Just one month after Windows 10 was released for free on July 29 earlier this year, the new operating system is now installed on 75 million devices. Only earlier this month Microsoft hit the 27 million install mark which […]
