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.

Yes, but given a choice between XP, Vista and 7, would there by any reason to pick Vista? If the hardware can handle Vista then it should also run 7. XP will run fine on hardware where Vista and 7 don't run well on.

If 8 is added to the list, does it really improve on 7? I don't like the split between Metro and classic. It should be either, not both.

Even if 8 is fine, I'm not sure it currently is a must-have upgrade to 7.

Windows 7 is great and I would have liked Microsoft to have improved upon it and not started the Metro experiment.
