At its Build 2015 developer conference today, Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s executive vice president of operating systems, set a huge goal for the company: Windows 10 on 1 billion devices “in two to three years.” This is a promise to developers that if they invest in Microsoft’s upcoming operating system, they will have access to a massive userbase.

Myerson said current estimates on Google Play show that Android KitKat is on “a little over 500 million devices.” He also added that the latest version of iOS 8 is on less than that.

In this vein, Myerson announced carrier billing is coming to all Windows devices. Microsoft already says it has the largest carrier billing support compared to other ecosystems, but that’s just for smartphones. Now the company wants to bring carrier billing to PCs and tablets too.
