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.

What press releases? Arstechnica reported on Windows Phone sales quadrupling Year over Year, my app download counts is a statistic of my own, and the Windows 8 halo effect comes from the fact that the timing is coincidentally following the launch of Windows 8.

It therefore isn't a stretch to conclude that Windows 8 produced a lift in uptake for Windows Phone.

I'm not sure I understand the point of your comment.
