Windows Steve Ballmer has just announced that in the first three days of being on sale, more than 4 million people have bought the Windows 8 upgrade. This doesn't count OEM installations or Microsoft's own Surface - just individual upgrades. Definitely a promising start for Windows 8, but then, these are most likely enthusiasts (I'm one of those four million), so we still don't know a whole lot. I'm patiently waiting for the response from regular consumers.

Microsoft is not orchestrating anything. They have a de facto monopoly on Desktop operating systems, so it should be no surprise a huge amount of users update to their latest offering.

Wether you like it or not, millions of people are going to be using this OS. The windows ecosystem has a huge momentum (on the Desktop at least).
