Microsoft Sells 100 Million Copies Of Windows 7--Next Up, World Domination
This week, the Redmond-based software giant has proudly announced that the mark has been surpassed, with Windows 7 now installed in one of every 10 PCs in the entire world. Just take a step back and let that sink in. For every 10 PCs in the world, Windows 7 is on one. Not even a full year after launching during a recession. That's pretty monumental.
Microsoft already announced crushing Q3 financial figures, noting that Win7 was a huge driver. Now we know exactly how huge. So, who's adopting so early? Mostly business users, but loads of consumers are also jumping on-board. Some say that Vista's shortcomings have actually helped Windows 7 sell, but either way, we're sure Microsoft isn't complaining about the motives behind it. Onward and upward, as they say.
