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.

Now With Free Phone?

I often wondered why MS didn't bundle their non-performing Phones with Windows.

Sure, it will be an inevitable lawsuit, but they always resolve way too late anyway.

They should bundle the phone as a loss-leader, at a drastically reduced price. Like $50 or something.

This would give them massive market share in the phone space, and would provide them with potential repeat buyers.
