This is a quick post. My apologies for being gone for so long… so much has been happening lately. I want to quickly check in as it is being reported that Windows 8 has sold more than 200 million licenses. This is another huge milestone. There have been many things that have transpired over the last few months; I’m excited to begin posting about my adventures. Until then, take heart that Windows 8 is growing.
I first saw this announcement from Mary Jo Foley and her article posted on ZDNet – Microsoft: More than 200 million Windows 8 licenses sold.
From the article, this looks to have been supported by Microsoft:
Update: A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed Reller’s 200 million Windows 8 licenses sold figure with the following statement:
“Windows 8 has surpassed 200 million licenses sold, and we continue to see momentum. This number includes Windows licenses that ship on a new tablet or PC, as well as upgrades to Windows 8. The figure does not include volume license sales to enterprise. Windows is a central part of life for more than 1.5 billion people around the world, and we are looking forward to the future.”
