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 Windows Store [...] is the most vibrant ecosystem, and probably the modern day gold rush.

Though, for how long? Apple store also had its gold rush.

And you know, the thing with gold rushes - those selling shovels and such were the only group making real money...
