Microsoft has just kicked off the final rollout process of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, also known as version 1709. The company first started rolling out the update to users in October of last year, and it’s now in the final phase of the rollout.

Fall Creators Update was the fastest release of Windows 10 so far to reach 100 million devices. The update only took 3 months to reach full availability and that’s slightly faster when compared to the original Creators Update rollout, which took roughly 4 months to reach full availability. The update is reportedly the most popular version of Windows 10 right now as well, powering more than half of all Windows 10 devices worldwide.

“We’re pleased to announce that the Fall Creators Update was the fastest Windows 10 release to reach 100M devices, all while achieving higher customer satisfaction ratings compared to prior updates,” Microsoft’s John Cable said in a blog post.

Microsoft last said Windows 10 powers 600 million active devices, so a major update that’s supposedly powering more than half of all the 600 million devices in just the third month of its release is excellent.
