Cortana on Windows 10

Various media reports reveal that Cortana, the digital voice assistant which Microsoft introduced to the desktop platform with Windows 10, is garnering interest. Windows Corporate Vice President, Yusuf Mehdi, noted that since launch on Windows 10, it has shared over half a million jokes in response to "tell me a joke" query which apparently tickles a lot of people’s fancy.

Also, Microsoft Solitaire Collection, which Microsoft released in Windows 10 replacing the old Solitaire title, and Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta, which the company recently launched, have seen users unlock over 10 million achievements.

Mehdi further stated that over 2,000 organisations are competing to win the global partner slot in its "Upgrade Your World" program.

If you don’t know what that is, through Upgrade Your World, Microsoft offers cash support to non-profit organisations.

The company also provides these organisations with its products and services for free. The Microsoft VP also thanked Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, and Dwayne Johnson, for helping the Upgrade Your World program.
