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.

Windows 95 people went in and acquired boxes of the Microsoft Operating system who did not even own a computer.

The age of the frenzy is over for Microsoft.

Or like my naïve 18-year-old self, didn't research compatibility and bought Windows 95 for a laptop with 4MB of RAM and no upgrade path. I eventually managed to get it to install, but it ran like drunken snail.

I get your point though; that "Start me up!" ad was compelling, and I never was a Stones man by any stretch.
