We’ve just posted the following news: Windows 10 growth slower than Microsoft anticipated – 1 billion goal far away[newsimage]http://www.myce.com/wp-content/images_posts/2015/07/myce-windows-10-here-95x75.png[/newsimage]

Microsoft expects that it won’t be able to achieve its self-imposed goal of 1 billion Windows 10 devices by 2018. The reason this likely won’t happen is mainly due disappointing Windows 10 Phone sales.

Not really a surprise, they’ve almost destroyed their phone business and the dodgy tactics employed for Windows 10 upgrades have alienated many and put a lot of other users off.

They could have reached 1 billion easily if the Windows 10 OS and mobile divisions were run the right way, but this is Microsoft, and they don’t do things the right way.

[B]News [/B]folks… Why am I not surprised… :Z

Doesn’t take a rocket science to figure this out.

The reason this likely won’t happen is mainly due disappointing Windows 10 Phone sales.
Really you think we will just will run out in mass to buy Windows phone… and yet you have to beat Android sales? Go figure…right…

Microsoft’s Terry Myerson predicted in 2015 that Windows 10 would be on 1 billion devices within 2-3 years after the OS was released.
Here’s one person ready for early retirement…

Windows 10 is still the fastest growing new Windows version ever. At the end of June the number of Windows 10 devices was reported to be 350 million
Again here’s more misinformation…Windows 7 outsold Windows 10 but you hear nothing about it. I don’t use Windows phone so they are trying to pad false numbers.

The company is happy with Windows 10’s progress but due to lower number of sold Windows 10 Phones
Really, happy with sales-so why do you force update Windows 10 or constant GWX nags? This to me tells another different story.

The Redmond software giant expected its 1 billion Windows 10 devices goal was feasible due to large number of different devices on which Windows 10 runs.
Really so whom are they paying to do a worthless job of seeing what was coming down the road? Obviously not someone smart enough is how I see it. Even a Kindergarten could tells you their strategy was going to fail and fail big time.

I too can’t imagine why Windows 10 isn’t as popular as Microsoft expected it to be.:rolleyes:
