PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE --
Microsoft has reportedly said that Windows 10 has been installed on 200 million devices so far worldwide.

According to WinBeta, Windows 10 has found itself on over 200 million devices worldwide. This is mighty impressive considering Windows 10 was released just a half-year ago. Windows 10 was offered as a free upgrade to most users and all-around is much better than Windows 8.


200 million is also the same goal for Ubuntu worldwide by the end of 2015 with a goal laid out by Mark Shuttleworth a few years back. While depending upon how you interpret that goal it wasn't reached for real devices it seems, but according to Canonical's Dustin Kirkland, there are more than one billion Ubuntu users.
