Microsoft ballyhoos 270M Windows 10 active users

Microsoft today said that 270 million “active users” are running Windows 10, the first update to the metric in almost four months.

The refreshed figure was offered up by Terry Myerson, the executive who runs Microsoft’s devices and operating systems, during the keynote that kicked off Build, the Redmond, Wash. company’s annual developers conference.

Like January’s 200 million, today’s figure was expressed in a software-as-a-service style, measuring not installations or daily activity, but the number of people who ran Windows 10 at least once in the past 30 days.

Microsoft’s Windows 10 claim included not only personal computers, but also tablets, phones and Xbox game consoles. Microsoft’s telemetric technologies in Windows 10 let it “see” when those devices were turned on and used by customers.
