More than half of PC users in PH have yet to upgrade to Windows 10

Software giant Microsoft said more than half of qualified PCs in the Philippines have only three days left to get a free Windows 10 upgrade.


According to web traffic analysis tool StatCounter, 56.4 percent of PCs in the Philippines are still running on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, both of which are eligible for the free Windows 10 upgrade offer.

While Windows 10 is the fastest growing version of Windows in history with more than 350 million active devices around the world, it has fallen short of the one billion target set by Microsoft during its launch.

However, Microsoft said Windows 10 has seen the highest customer satisfaction rate among customers as compared to previous versions of Windows.

In addition, the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update will roll out globally on August 2, bringing new features to all Windows 10 PCs. The new features are available on the Microsoft News Center and on the Windows blog.

?With Windows 10, our vision was to provide the best and most secure operating system that gets even better over time. The Anniversary Update is just the first step in our commitment to consistently add new features and innovations that people love to Windows 10,? said Microsoft Philippines country manager Karrie Ilagan.

?Customers who take advantage of the free upgrade today can do so with the full confidence that they will continue to reap the benefits Windows 10 will offer down the road.?

Microsoft said it is encouraging all qualified PCs to upgrade to Windows 10 immediately, before the free upgrade offer ends on July 29, 2016.

After July 29, users who missed the free upgrade offer will have to purchase a new Windows 10 product license to keep their devices up-to-speed with the Anniversary Update.

To enjoy the full Windows 10 experience, customers may also upgrade by purchasing a new PC packed with modern hardware such as the latest processors, graphics, and Infrared (IR) cameras that support Windows Hello.
