It has been almost a year and a half since the release of Windows 10, and today it’s running on more than 400 million devices worldwide. IT administrators are reporting an estimate of 15% improvement in OS management time to put toward other IT areas. Plus, security remediation has been greatly reduced, thanks to Windows 10 security features like Credential Guard and Device Guard, along with improved features like BitLocker.

by Ashley Lofaro | 07.19.16

The one-year anniversary of the Windows 10 release is right around the corner, and Microsoft just announced the operating system is now on 300 million active devices. Thanks to improvement-focused processes like the Insider Program and constantly testing new builds, Windows 10 has the highest customer satisfaction of any version of Windows. What’s even more unique about this release is that a lot of these upgrades to Windows 10 have been for free thanks to Microsoft’s Free Upgrade Offer—but that will soon be coming to an end on July 29, 2016.

Windows 10

Windows 10 has been having great success with its silicon partners, especially with Intel’s new Skylake processor. If you compare the partnership of Intel’s Skylake with Windows 10 versus other Windows 7 systems, the performance is unmatched with 30x better graphics, 3x better battery life, and improved security with features like Credential Guard using silicon supported virtualization. Following this success, Microsoft wants to make sure its users have a great experience and utilize these advancements. At the same time, Microsoft wants to be transparent as they change their focus to a partnership between Windows and silicon. So on January 15th they made an announcement that made recommendations for businesses who are looking to upgrade to new systems that feature Intel’s Skylake processor and an addition to its support policy for Windows 7/8.1.
