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.

Not Orchestrating anything? Really? You don't think the two billion $ U.S. Marketing campaign is 'orchestrating' anything?

That's certainly more then was spent on developing the new OS by a factor of about 40:1. And will be a time expenditure of marketing to development of cash of about 4000:1.

So, not 'orchestrating', this two billion $ U.S. is just 'good will spending'?
