Windows 8 has sold 40 million licenses so far

According to Microsoft Windows 8 isn`t doing too bad after all. Microsoft is claiming that since release one month ago Windows 8 has sold 40 million licenses. Despite the fact some reviewers and users had issues with Microsoft`s newest Operating system. Windows 8 is doing so well that apparently it`s outpaced Windows 7 upgrades.

From the windows blog:

"As we pass the one month anniversary of the general availability of Windows 8, we are pleased to announce that to-date Microsoft has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses. Tami Reller shared this news with industry and financial analysts, investors and media today at the Credit Suisse 2012 Annual Technology Conference. Windows 8 is outpacing Windows 7 in terms of upgrades. We built Windows 8 to work great on existing Windows 7 PCs. And we also set out to make upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8 super easy."

i`ve yet o try it out, but i`m sure I`ll build a trial system just for Windows 8 soon enough
