Windows 10 installations exceed 50M, new cumulative update is out

George, 15 August, 2015

A little over two weeks after the official launch of Windows 10, the number of installations of the new OS has passed the 50 million mark. Even though the adoption may seem to have slowed down after the initial 14 million in 24 hours, the numbers will inevitably continue to climb as Microsoft gradually expands the range of devices to receive the update.

Ever since day one the new OS has been available in 190 countries, but the wave-like fashion of the process has meant that certain devices will get the update sooner than others. The source states that a large number of devices were added to last week's wave, hence the growing install count.

Meanwhile, a new cumulative update has been rolled out, bringing "improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10". The build number is 3081438 and the update weighs in at 180MB for 32-bit systems and twice as much for 64-bit ones. Due to its cumulative nature, however, only the bits that you haven't installed with previous fixes will be downloaded.
