In The Windows 8 News



And The Survey Says…

The numbers are in and it looks like Microsoft’s Windows 8, the newest version of the operating system family, is off to a solid start.  Windows 8 was released on October 26 and has sold 40 million licenses in the past month.  In fact, that pace matches the early sales numbers of Windows 7 when it was released.   The quick start may not come as a big surprise, considering that the release date of October 26 came just before the holiday shopping season.


According to Tami Reller, Windows division financial chief, Microsoft is “very pleased with the customer reception so far.”  Reller also stated that operating system upgrades, where someone is upgrading to Windows 8 from an earlier version of Windows, are ahead of pace when compared to Windows 7 upgrades a few years ago.  Currently Microsoft is offering the upgrade for only $40 until January 31st.  The upgrade is available to anyone using Windows XP, Vista, or 7 on their PC.  The upgrade is also available to anyone who purchased a new Windows PC since June for only $15.

Right now it’s a bit early to tell how long 8′s momentum will carry, but many PC industry experts are predicting sales to eventually cool off over the first year and fall just behind Windows 7′s numbers.  Right now some of the bigger obstacles Windows 8 is facing are the lack of touchscreen PCs, people just adopting Windows 7, and a Windows Store app collection that is relatively small compared to its competitors.

Currently sales numbers for Microsoft’s new tablet, the Surface, have not been released.  The Surface also includes a scaled-down version of Windows 8 on its base models and will run a full version of Windows 8 and the higher-end models.
