During the Build 2015 keynote (https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2015/KEY01), Terry Myerson (https://twitter.com/tmyerson) boldly announced that Windows 10 will be running on 1 billion devices (https://blogs.windows.com/bloggingwindows/2015/07/02/windows-10-preparing-to-upgrade-one-billion-devices/) within the next 2 to 3 years. In the first month since its release, Windows 10 was installed on over 75 million devices (http://blogs.windows.com/bloggingwindows/2015/08/26/windows-10-now-on-75-million-devices/), and those numbers continue to grow daily. The developer opportunity has never been greater than it is today!
