Windows 10 Downloads Haven’t Broken the Internet

The Internet is feeling the pressure from the launch of Windows 10, with traffic 35% higher than normal. But, it hasn’t caused any problems at Microsoft or elsewhere as far as people can tell. Microsoft is pushing the update out in waves, which can help keep everyone from downloading it all at once. Plus, they were pushing the bits slowly the past few days to many users. Microsoft has made this launch go pretty smooth so far. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. Still a lot of issues in the forums and Microsoft communities.

Some people had feared that the Internet, or at least Microsoft’s servers, might crack under the strain. After all, the Brazilian 2014 World Cup, Apple’s iOS 8 release, and the first episode of the Game of Thrones all faltered under user demand.
