Windows 10 has always seen mixed response ever since its inception. Personally, we loved Windows 10. It was lightweight, efficient and brought a more streamlined approach to the Windows operating system. Now because of the continuous improvements done by Microsoft, and as time has gone by, it has successfully become the world’s largest desktop operating system. Now Windows 10 has even begun to gradually eclipse Windows 7, the global equipment installation numbers have reached about 8 Billion now!
According to the latest Steam hardware and software survey data, gamers have completely fallen in love with Windows 10, and its share exceeded 70% for the first time. This is far above the industry average and represents a huge win for the Windows 10 OS.
