After leaving the 300 million mark behind in May, Microsoft's operating system reaches now a new milestone, running on no less than 400 million devices.

With Windows Mobile as good as dead, Microsoft will most likely miss the "one billion Windows 10 devices by 2018" goal, but the entire situation might not be that bad, after all.  The amount of active Windows 10 devices is now heading for the 500 million barrier slowly, but surely, as Microsoft checks the 400 million mark.

Back in late March, the company reported 207 million active devices with Windows 10 on board. The figure reached 300 million in early May, and then the 400 million barrier, an achievement the Redmond giant has added to its trofee chamber on September 26.

Same as before, the numbers include devices that have been active in the past 28 days, including Surface Hubs and HoloLens, as well as more common Xbox One consoles, mobile phones, and the ubiquitous Windows PCs and  tablets. We will probably hear about the 500 million Windows 10 active Windows devices mark being reached in early 2017, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
