Microsoft now claims half a billion Windows 10 devices

Microsoft’s chief executive yesterday touted a new number for Windows 10, saying the operating system now powers 500 million devices — half way toward a goal the company once gave itself but since discarded.

During a keynote address that opened Microsoft’s Build developers conference in Seattle Wednesday, CEO Satya Nadella updated the Windows 10 installed base as he pitched the OS to programmers.

“Think about the 500 million Windows 10 devices that you can now reach through the Windows Store,” Nadella said. “That reach is what’s going to drive our ecosystem going forward. It’s going to give each one of you more of an audience, more users, more engagement in a secure way.”

Integrated into Microsoft Internet Explorer® for Windows®, netXtract delivers a breakthrough approach to document navigation and relevance determination. netXtract automatically indexes each document displayed by IE, extracts all contexts for any key term you choose and allows you to “jump” directly to the context you find most interesting. netXtract also allows you to define custom filters, or “dictionaries” of related terms by area of study, interest or business focus (e.g. medical, legal, financial, business intelligence, etc.). Build your own personal knowledge base Once you’ve found relevant information, you decide exactly what to save for future reference. netXtract allows you to build a local personal Knowledge Base of any text you select from documents displayed in Internet Explorer. You can also save to your Knowledge Base from any other application (MS Word, email client, etc.). netXtract’s Knowledge Base (KB) Manager allows you to categorize, maintain and query your Knowledge Base. Selecting any entry saved from a web document returns you directly to that point in the original online document.
