Microsoft Brags about the Number of Windows 8 Licenses Sold since Launch

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
