A Microsoft employee who wishes to remain anonymous to the public has informed Windows Central that as of 8 AM this morning, the Windows 10 OS has reportedly been installed on a massive 67 million machines.

Even more interesting is the claim that Microsoft hit a max bandwidth of 15 Tb/s, topping the previous record of Apple's 8 Tb/s during their last OS push. Microsoft has reportedly reserved up to 40Tb/s "from all of the third-party CDNs combined".

These are pretty insane numbers.

For me, it took a while before it was searchable without having to use the Cortana search.

Though, once it became searchable, it was much faster than searching the start screen in Windows 8.x - back to, or slightly faster, than searching the start.

Otherwise, I like it much better. Pinning app tiles to it is actually really good - since I put everything small size anyways, it's a good place to put icons for everything I use frequently enough that I want fast access, but infrequently enough to not want it to live in the task bar.

Also, task bar icons are a tad smaller, and closer together, since it no longer has to accommodate fingers.

But, I have a couple of weird issues, too:
First, a couple entries (Maps, and People) display the associated UUID rather than the actual name.

Second, when I drag the scroll bar in the all programs list, the mouse moves faster and beyond the scroll bar itself. It looks weird, but doesn't seem to actually affect usage.
