Windows 8 shipments top 100 million mark

Microsoft Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Financial Officer Tami Reller revealed in an interview that sales of Windows 8 have now surpassed 100 million. Sales of Windows 8 seem to be slowing down though. In January the software giant reported that Windows 8 sales hit the 60 million mark, corresponding to around 20 million licenses sold per month. Since then the firm has sold only 40 million licenses, meaning sales have slowed down to a mere 8 million licenses a month.
Brandon LeBlanc: It’s been several months since we announced that 60 million licenses of Windows 8 had been soldsince general availability. Where are we now?

Tami Reller:We recently surpassed the 100 million licenses sold mark for Windows 8. This number includes Windows licenses that ship on a new tablet or PC, as well as upgrades to Windows 8. This is up from the 60 million license number we provided in January. We’ve also seen the number of certified devices for Windows 8 and Window RT grow to 2,400 devices, and we’re seeing more and more touch devices in the mix.

As we talked about in our last Q&A, Windows 8 is a big, ambitious change. While we realize that change takes time, we feel good about the progress since launch, including what we’ve been able to accomplish with the ecosystem and customer reaction to the new PCs and tablets that are available now or will soon come to market.
Microsoft also revealed that consumers have now downloaded over 250 million apps from the Windows Store.
