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.

Yes, very probable.

Can't wait to try this and see if it makes a noticable difference. We have 3 lucky users we didn't give a new PC and are still working with XP. I won't be in the office until Monday though.

Must try it on my dual Pentium II machine (should be similar with win2k). Or I'll just finally slap BeOS on it :p

I couldn't wait and remote booted a XP PC at work. When I tried to install the patch it refused saying something new already had been installed.

The registry and boot things I could do. But it's hard to tell any change in performance when using some remote login tool. So I guess I still have to go there in person.

Removing McAfee would probably be a more noticeable performance boost!
