Over at the JP Morgan tech forum at CES 2013, Microsoft Windows chief marketing officer Tami Reller announced that Windows 8 has sold 60 million licenses to date. This figure represents the total number of upgrades and sales to OEMs for now devices. The announcement reveals the adoption of Windows 8 is slowing down, the company sold 40 million licenses in the first month, and it took 1.5 months to sell another 20 million licenses.
According to Microsoft this is a similar sales trajectory that it saw with Windows 7, which is hardly good, considering that the PC market has grew pretty significantly from 2009 levels when the world was in the midst of the worst economic downturn in decades.

“We have seen a significant increase in the number of Windows 8 certified systems since general availability at the end of October. There are now more than 1700 certified systems for Windows 8 and Windows RT,” said Brandon LeBlanc, a spokesman for Microsoft.
