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.

I am super proud to say, I am not one of those 4 Million.
Microsoft is totally irrelevant to me and the hundreds of people I switched over to more relevant and less walled in Operating Systems.

Good luck to Microsoft, but the world and it's opinion is changing. No matter what the paid shills on all the forums and tech sites say.

Wait a second. I can be a paid shill for liking Windows 8? Where do I sign up?
