Since its release four weeks ago, 75 million devices are now running Microsoft’s new Windows 10 operating system, said Yusuf Mehdi, the company’s Corporate Vice President of Marketing for Windows and Devices.

In comparison, Windows 8 needed six months to reach 100 million license sales, and seems to validate Microsoft’s strategy to release Windows 10 as a free upgrade.

In a series of tweets, Mehdi also revealed that the OS has been downloaded in 192 countries, and more than 122 years of gameplay had been streamed from the company’s video game console Xbox One to Windows 10 devices.

Windows 10 has been enjoying stellar reviews since its release, and early bugs found the system are being addressed by the company.
