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.

Windows Phone sales have quadrupled Year over Year. Nokia has taken something like almost 3 million pre orders for the Lumia 920. They've come a long way.

Windows 8 is having a definite halo effect. In fact, since Windows 8 launched my Windows Phone app has exploded in downloads, there is definitely some real movement happening there.
