So, there’s improvement on the Microsoft front! Windows 8, despite being an awkward transition that caught many consumers by surprise, has started to pick up upgrade users. In fact, according to Tami Reller, the Windows Chief Marketing and Financial Officer, 40 million licences of Windows 8 have been sold to date; she revealed the figure during a speech at Credit Suisse 2012 Annual Technology Conference. These sales were purportedly achieved during the first few days of availability, back in October. This comes after initial reports that MSFT was displeased with early sales. Perhaps that is no longer the case?
