Despite all ramblings about how bad Windows 8 is (it really isn't), Microsoft's new operating system is off to a splendid start as sales are outpacing Windows 7 in terms of upgrades. Microsoft blogger Brandon LeBlanc shared that the software giant has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses in one month.
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. We built Windows 8 to work great on existing Windows 7 PCs. And we also set out to make upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8 super easy.
If the new operating system keeps selling at the same pace, it will hit 80 million sales in two months time, 20 million more than Windows 7 achieved in its first two months. For comparison, Windows XP shipped 8 million copies in its first month, while Vista sold 10 million licences in its launch month.
