A new survey from Evans Data finds that the number of developers running Windows 10 on their systems has climbed 645 percent over the past six months, and 1.4 million developers are now using the operating system. In addition, it found that 3.7 million developers are now targeting Windows 10.
“Windows 10 is absolutely being received well by developers, especially those who never adopted Windows 8,” said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data. “Developers were hesitant about 8, but Windows 10 brings a lot more promise for those who want to target newer devices without losing their connection to the still mammoth world of Windows on the desktop. The possibility of addressing all Windows devices with one app is very appealing.”
