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.

A new Windows comes out and sells millions upon release. And this surprises anyone? .....Really? 4,000,000 is a tiny sliver of the Windows desktop user base. It's just as predictable as people making lame attempts at conspiracy theories or some other ridiculous nonsense to explain it.
