14 million have upgraded to Windows 10 in its first 24 hours


— 9:26 AM on July 31, 2015

As we found out when we got together and recorded our latest podcast last night, Scott is the only member of the TR staff that's using Windows 10 so far, but at least he's not alone. Microsoft says 14 million people have upgraded to Windows 10 in the new operating system's first 24 hours of general release. Despite scattered reports that something tends to happen when upgrading, the company claims that reviews and consumer feedback have been "overwhelmingly positive" so far.

That 14-million figure seems likely to grow manyfold over the coming weeks, as Microsoft continues the phased rollout process for Windows customers who took the company up on its free upgrade offer. Win10 is also available for purchase in Home and Pro editions if you're not eligible for the upgrade program for whatever reason.
