100 Million Windows 8 Licenses Sold

Microsoft revealed today that the company has sold over 100 million Windows 8 licenses so far. In January the number was 60 million. This is quite a run in the last three month for Windows 8.

Microsoft's Tami Reller, Chief Marketing Officer also confirmed Windows Blue. She said about Blue: "Windows Blue is a codename for an update that will be available later this year, building on the bold vision set forward with Windows 8 to deliver the next generation of tablets and PCs. It will deliver the latest new innovations across an increasingly broad array of form factors of all sizes, display, battery life and performance, while creating new opportunities for our ecosystem. It will provide more options for businesses, and give consumers more options for work and play. The Windows Blue update is also an opportunity for us to respond to the customer feedback that we’ve been closely listening to since the launch of Windows 8 and Windows RT. From a company-wide perspective, Windows Blue is part of a broader effort to advance our devices and services for Microsoft."
