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.

Maybe if they would stop spending so much f***ing money on advertising, then we would no longer have to spend such outrageous amounts of money just to obtain a license to use their operating system. Of course, their monopoly doesn't help much either.
