    Threshold 2 Is a Disaster

    well Windows 7 is dominating with +50% of the OS share market

    and microsoft is going to lose million of users

    when microsoft will drop the support for Windows 7

    and many business are also using Windows 7

    that is already a fact..!!!

    conclusions;

    microsoft is totally in delusional mode

    they set up a goal that in 3 years

    they will running windows 10 in one billion devices

    and the people are scratching their heads

    because they know that there is not way

    that 1 billion of users will get in windows 10

    for obvious reasons that only microsoft can't understand

    obviously in 2018 microsoft is going to lie about it

    and claim that they have reach that goal..!

    what Microsoft doesn't understand is that

    the people are not that stupid

    and in the end the People always walk away from dishonesty

    it's all about have a valuable alternatives

    and those alternatives to windows from microsoft are already here

    and those existing alternatives can only get better in our near future

    thanks for the general bad attitude of microsoft ..!!!

    fk it

    I'm going to do what I previously told you right now

    Microsoft's big Windows 10 goal: one billion or bust

    In two to 3 years they'll be nearing their goal in new PC sales alone, not to speak of PCs that will upgrade to Win 10. This should be easy for MS. It seems to me that the goal of a billion users, rather than devices, would be more of a logical goal for MS; or at least one that won't be so easily reached.

    When you add in all the counterfeit Windows 7 upgrading to Windows 10 from China alone should make a Billion a easy target.

    It would be a great goal to reach if it was a Billion paying customers.

    Didn't they just clarify that whole "counterfeit/hacked" versions of Windows 7 get a free upgrade thing as being a misunderstanding? I thought I read that somewhere.

    I wish they would also extend the offer to people on capable machines that still run XP or Vista. They want people off XP as much as possible and Vista will be next to go (even thought the user share isn't that high anyway), and many of the systems that are still running those two (mostly Core 2 at this point I think) are capable of running Windows 8, so Win 10 shouldn't be a problem at all for them. Plus it will add to their target of 1 billion.

    They are counting PC's, Smart Phones, Tablet's, Surface Things, and Laptops. Many people own at least 3 of those devices so 1 Billion is really not that unreachable sine they are counting devices and not users.
