  Windows 10 installed on 75 million devices after just a month of availability
Time: 11:49 EST/16:49 GMT | News Source: Ars Technica | Posted By: Erick Cordero

The free upgrade from Windows 7 and 8 to Windows 10 is doing wonders: In just under a month of general availability, Windows 10 is now running on 75 million devices.

Unsurprisingly, Windows 10 appears to be doing better than Windows 8: back in 2012, only 40 million Windows 8 licenses were sold in the first month of availability. After six months, Windows 8 had risen to 100 million licenses sold—but "sold" is likely to be a very different figure from how many devices were actually running Windows 8. So, 75 million devices running Windows 10 after a month is pretty darn good.

While we patiently wait for Microsoft to roll out a beta version of their unified Skype messaging experience "before the end of the summer", a Russian website has managed to get a hold of what looks like the new Skype unified experience for Windows 10 Mobile.

The screenshots, which you can view in the gallery below, show off Skype, Messaging and Video — which will be part of the Universal Skype experience on Windows 10.

  Microsoft issues emergency patch for all versions of Windows
Time: 01:27 EST/06:27 GMT | News Source: ZDNet | Posted By: Erick Cordero

It's all Internet Explorer's fault -- again. Microsoft has released an emergency out-of-band patch for a "critical"-rated security vulnerability, affecting all supported versions of Windows.

The software giant said in an advisory Tuesday that users visiting a specially-crafted website can lead to remote code execution on an affected machine

  As of yesterday, Windows 10 has been installed on 67 million devices
Time: 01:24 EST/06:24 GMT | News Source: BetaNews | Posted By: Erick Cordero

’ve read some interesting guestimates on the number of Windows 10 downloads lately. One blog plucks a figure out of the air -- "50 million sound fair to you?" -- another blog inflates the number -- "Let’s go with 53 million!" -- and then a whole bunch of other blogs and sites that should know better run with these numbers as if they are real.

The only way we’ll actually know how many Windows 10 downloads there have been to date is if Microsoft releases numbers (and even then, they probably need to be taken with a slight pinch of salt), but we can get a rough, and reasonably accurate idea of Windows 10’s usage share and, from there, the number of downloads to date.

  Windows 10 is already getting new features via Microsoft’s Insider program
Time: 01:19 EST/06:19 GMT | News Source: *Linked Within Post* | Posted By: Erick Cordero

As promised, Microsoft is continuing to preview new features for Windows 10 before they’re rolled out to the public. The company today launched build 10525, its first desktop Insider build since the official launch of the OS on July 29. There isn’t too much in the way of new features, but two changes are notable. First up you now have a bit more flexibility in choosing a UI color: Windows 10’s ‘accent’ color will now apply to an app’s title bar as well.

Windows activation is alive and well in Windows 10. Microsoft doesn't like to talk about the inner workings of its anti-piracy software, but it's clear from testing that Windows 10 included a major change in the way activation works.
