Windows 8 Sales Hit 60M Since Launch

Sixty million? Damn, that means Microsoft has sold an average of six million Windows 8 licenses per week since October? That sure is a lot of licenses for being a "flop."

Microsoft Corp has sold 60 million licenses and upgrades for its new Windows 8 operating system in the 10 weeks since its launch, one of the top executives of the company's Windows unit said at the Consumer Electronics Show on Tuesday. Windows 8 sales are growing in line with those of Windows 7, Microsoft's last operating system, launched in 2009, said Tami Reller, chief financial officer of the Windows division, in a presentation to analysts and investors at the annual tech show in Las Vegas.
