Microsoft talks Windows 8 sales numbers

Microsoft launched the latest version of its Windows operating system on October 26. The new version of the operating system is called Windows 8. Microsoft has recently announced that it has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses since the operating system launched at the end of October.

The announcement came from Tami Reller, the chief marketing and financial officer for Windows, this week. This is the first time Microsoft has talked specific numbers for Windows 8 since it announced previously it had sold 4 million upgrade licenses since launch.

Microsoft is also noted that it took two months to sell 60 million licenses for Windows 7 in 2009. Selling 40 million Windows 8 licenses in one month puts the new operating system on path to be bigger than its predecessor. Windows 7 users can currently upgrade to the new operating system for $39.99.
