Four Million Windows 8 Upgrades Since Friday

The numbers are in and, according to Microsoft, the company has sold four million Windows 8 upgrades over the weekend. I guess Ballmer wasn't lying when he said Windows 8 is selling better than Windows 7 up to this point.

Microsoft Corp Chief Executive Steve Ballmer said on Tuesday the company has sold 4 million upgrades to Windows 8, signaling a strong start for its new operating system which launched on Friday. Ballmer, speaking at a meeting for software developers at Microsoft's headquarters near Seattle, said hundreds of millions of Windows systems would be sold over the next year, and the company was seeing strong interest from business users.
