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.

The source of Microsoft's monopoly.

Of course MS sold millions of licenses of Windows 8, due to the unjust copyright laws in software. If anyone thinks copyright is necessary they really need to read a history book and see how copyright (and patents) slows down technological growth. Nothing can be more evident in the PC desktop.

Microsoft is a monopoly because of copyright law.
