Windows 10 has found its way onto 600 million active devices, says CEO Satya Nadella. 

Nadella made the comment at the company's annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday, according to GeekWire. Microsoft wasn't immediately available to confirm the comment. 

The company has high hopes for the broad adoption of Windows 10, which helped usher in Microsoft's transition from purely a software company to one relying more on services. Terry Myerson, Microsoft's vice president of operating systems, said he'd hoped to see 1 billion devices within two to three years of the 2015 launch of Windows 10.
