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.

I wouldn't have thought it

But put me in the camp of sold on Win 8. Just upgraded to it on my gaming notebook (samsung gamer 7) and I've been pleasantly surprised that I am digging it so far. Haven't found anything broken yet after I upgraded a couple of sammy's utils to integrate with the hardware properly. Slowly learning the new keyboard shortcuts. I especially like that I don't have to be in Metro if I don't want to. It's definitely FAST.

I'll keep trying to warm up to metro over time, I'm curiously intrigued because it's a new toy, but mostly indifferent to it at the moment with a touch of liking it.
