Windows "As we pass the one month anniversary of the general availability of Windows 8, we are pleased to announce that to-date Microsoft has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses. Tami Reller shared this news with industry and financial analysts, investors and media today at the Credit Suisse 2012 Annual Technology Conference. Windows 8 is outpacing Windows 7 in terms of upgrades." Not bad, but there are the usual asterisks, as Ars notes.

Not impressive

Considering how cheap Windows 8 costs as an upgrade, I would say 40 million is an unimpressive number. And I think it is pretty safe to say that it will be harder to convince the next 40 million to buy Windows 8 than it was for the early adopters.

I don't plan on ever using Windows 8. Windows 7 is my last Windows.
