In its first month on the market, Windows 7, Microsoft’s most lauded and, so far, best-loved OS hauled around 35 million in license sales. While Microsoft never revealed any official numbers for Windows 7, this is based on estimation given that the OS sold over 150 million licenses since its release in 2009 and its retirement in October this year. While many of the license sales were for upgrades and some were even given away for free by accident, 40 million is indeed a good number. One wonders how many of those are comprised of upgrade sales and hardware sales, but nontheless its good news for Microsoft that its new baby isn’t dead in the water.
