Microsoft launched their new Windows 10 operating system earlier this week, making it available as a free update to anyone who is running Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 on their PC or tablet.

Microsoft has now revealed that over 14 million people installed this new operating system on their device in the first 24 hours, and because the Windows 10 update is being gradually rolled out to users, there are still a number of users still waiting for their update to be available.

That said 14 million installs in the first 24 hours is still extremely impressive, and suggests that Windows 10 will be very popular with the Windows user base.

That is only proven by the amount of great reviews the operating system has received since its launch.

Microsoft hopes that this hype will continue, with aims to get a total of 1 billion users on the new OS.

They are also set to bring the Windows 10 software to smartphones later this year, with rumours suggesting that it will hit sometime in November. Xbox will also get a new OS that uses aspects of the Windows 10 OS this fall.
