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.

Also I'd like to see copyright law be reduced again, instead of extended.

We are now at 75-years after the dead of the author, instead of the original plan, which was: 8 years.

Copyright, like patents, is meant to improve the rate of innovation.

Instead of we have Disney lobbying* the US government to keep extending the copyright laws so they can keep the copyright on Mickey Mouse.

* I wouldn't be surprised if they also "fund things"
