Windows 10 zooms up the ranks, currently 5th largest desktop OS

On Thursday Microsoft said they already have 14 million installs of Windows 10 after they released the OS to Insiders a day earlier.

It seems that number, large as it is, is itself a poor reflection of the enthusiasm of the Windows community for the new OS.

Statcounter, who measures web usage and by proxy the installed base of operating systems, gives us a much finer look at what’s going on, and suggests nearly 2.5% of the 1.5 billion desktop users are already on Windows 10, starting at 0.58% on Thursday, and looking at the rate of increase it seems Microsoft’s goal of a billion installs in 3 years will be achieved well before that deadline.
