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.

Owning one of the OS within a VM setup can still give a lot of leeway...

My primary purpose is software development and testing, not every day use. The most those systems use the Internet is for updating the tools using Windows Update.

But this is the best part - you said it yourself, you hardly use Windows in the first place.
