Microsoft Says a Windows 7 Computer Is Upgraded to Windows 10 Every Second
Upgrading users from Windows 7 to Windows 10 is Microsoft’s next big challenge since the 2009 desktop operating system is set to reach end of support in January 2020, and as far as the company is concerned, things are going great right now.
With enterprises currently a priority, Microsoft says upgrades are completed on commercial computers faster than you can imagine. How fast? Since January 4, a Windows 7 computer is upgraded to Windows 10 every 0.98 seconds, according to Brad Anderson, Microsoft Vice President.
This happens with ConfigMgr, Microsoft’s set of tools to manage large groups of Windows computers, and if the same pace is maintained, Windows 7 should be running on just a small number of systems when support ends in early 2020.
And while this is indeed good news for Microsoft itself, third-party data doesn’t seem to be pointing to such a fast migration to Windows 10.
