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.

I believe that there were some latency improvements in Win8. Things seem to happen more quickly after you click.

Some of that is related to the removal of the Aero effects.

All in all it gives an impression of more speed. I don't think things are actually faster. But making them seem faster is a worthy thing in its own right.
