Windows Steve Ballmer has just announced that in the first three days of being on sale, more than 4 million people have bought the Windows 8 upgrade. This doesn't count OEM installations or Microsoft's own Surface - just individual upgrades. Definitely a promising start for Windows 8, but then, these are most likely enthusiasts (I'm one of those four million), so we still don't know a whole lot. I'm patiently waiting for the response from regular consumers.

Microsoft has long been expert at orchestrating the "sales stampede." I wouldn't put any credibility on any early sales figures they release.

Remember how they convinced US television to show pictures of people waiting in line to buy Windows 95? They're still at it.
