Microsoft just announced that Windows 10 is being actively used by 270 million users around the world, an achievement for the OS that was released just eight months ago. While it’s still a far cry from the 1 billion install base Microsoft is hoping to achieve, it’s getting there slowly.

Another interesting announcement is that over 500 new pieces of Windows 10 hardware has been released by Microsoft partners since the release of the operating system, a piece of great news because for Windows 10 to be successful, it’ll require all the support from hardware makers around the world it can get.

Those 270 million users have collectively spent 75 billion hours on Windows 10 so far. That’s a huge number and quite daunting to realize that 270 million active users have managed to do this in just eight months.
