14 million downloads of ‘Windows 10’ not good enough for Microsoft

After 14 million downloads of its new operating system, Windows 10, which came out earlier this week, Microsoft says “there’s still a long way to go.”

Microsoft wrote on its blog post, “While we have more than 14 million devices running Windows 10, we still have many more upgrades to go before we catch up to each of you that reserved your upgrade.”

The company had asked its users to reserve their copy of Windows 10 in advance by using an app “Get Windows 10” that had appeared on their system weeks ahead of the release.

Then the users had to wait for a notification from the company which would tell if the new operating system is compatible with their PCs.

“If you reserved your upgrade of Windows 10, we will notify you once your PC is ready for Windows 10 and it has been downloaded on your PC,” Microsoft posted. “The best way to know your upgrade is ready is to look for this notification in your system tray.”

But this is not the only way to upgrade your system to Windows 10. You can just open up Microsoft’s website and download the “Media Creation Tool”. By opening this application the user gets the option to upgrade the system, and then sets up the computer and gets it ready.
